Need Critique

Im new to the forum and pretty much the art world. Painting was and is still a release from the real world for me. Recently I decided to take it a little more serious and am in need of some honest opinions.

Let me know what you think.
Thanks

They all look great, but the cherries look so real makes me want to reach in and grab one. Keep it up. Great work.

I'm not much of a painter, but I like the strong use of color. Keep it up!

Have you tried scetching and working out your compositions before painting?

I like the cherries. Good use of colour. But for the rose I would have added a few leaves to the stem. I love the contrasting background. The last one I'm not sure what it is but it's amazing.

I really like the cherries - nicely done. The rose, for me I think it's the outlining that throws it off. I would prefer to see it done with shading acting to outline instead of an actual line drawn. Does that make sense? It's still very nice though. Your paintings are very vibrant.

These are impressive, especially the cherries. I'm not actually an expert painter, but I think you still need to work out on the consistency of the textures to even them out a little bit. Other than that I think your pieces are good.
