Oil Painting lesson with Gregory Smith - Day 4

I did some more details on all the subjects.
I changed the top section of a pumpkin, slightly changed the curvature of a porcelain on the left, etc.

Greg told me that the surface of the table was too flat, so I tried to change its tone a bit in order to create its spacial depth. He also suggested that I should make the base of a plate a bit longer, which again would help creating visual space.
And, he put a strong bright red on a pomegranate on the left, he said that it would also help that purpose, because it would come forward.
I all makes sense.

Finally, I did background to finish it off. It still needs more polish, I guess.
However, I'm reasonably happy with this one.

He said that it's all done for now.
I'm looking forward to a new painting next week.

I'm learning a lot.
