The texturing for the glass was well done, though the glass on the far left feels a little unfinished. (But to be fair, I think it might just be the shadows on it.) What particularly made me happy about the glasswork was the orange glass where drips had run down it. This created a very realistic sense. The green glass was excellently done as well, but one minor thing that sticks out to me is it`s right side, where it looks like it slightly angles inward a bit.

The texture on the various metal components was my favourite part of the piece by far. The center metal object (I`ll admit I`m not too sure what the names for these objects are) captured my attention the most, with the light and dark selections of it. Each metallic object was done with slightly different mixes of colour and texture, which helped differentiate yet bring them together in the composition. The metal pot in the back also caught my attention by the warmer colours used in it. Usually warm colours are used to bring objects to the front, but you successfully placed them in the back for this piece.

The onions were nicely done and brought a different colour tone to the front of the image. They also helped level the piece out, giving the image an even weight. The wood was realistic as well, the line where it goes from horizontal to vertical clearly and believably established. The only issue I would have with the wood is the area below the foremost handle of the metal object. It`s a bit difficult to differentiate where it is verticle vs horizontal. I believe this is mainly due to the shadow work, but the accuracy of the rest of the piece makes this barely noticable.

At the start I was unable to notice the back wall, which drew me to look more closely at the piece to notice it. It was nicely subtle.

Overall it was a wonderful composition and the use of lighting made it all the more successful (with the vintage look). An excellent technical artwork!

what a wonderful painting and it's unusual and truly rare to see an academic art nowadays. you have made a connection between the presente and past, what i meen with this is that you use utensils of nowadays with a composition off old times that we can see in a book of history. i have seen your profile and you do same connections. it's really great to see people, like you, use this type of relation in the art. i hope you can do a great exposition with your works (and don't listen too much from a profissional critics, some of them can truly get you down), keep going and you will be praise.
