Here is my latest piece, a still life with strawberries. Hmmm, the bread was a bit of a challenge... not too sure about it to be honest, I like the crust but I think I'm missing the texture of the loaf where it's been cut.


As always comments, crits and suggestions are most welcome

Cheers

What a lovely piece.

The only part of the bread that seems a bit off is the lowest end off the cut-off part.  Maybe it just needs to be rounded in a bit more, as it seems to come to a point.

Otherwise, it's totally great as it is.

Fi, look at how you captured the light! It's a stunning painting--really. I think the cut part of the bread shows the grain beautifully. Seriously, I wouldn't change a thing.
