Honest critique

I want your honest critique on this one.I like the vase(and the gold leaf he he) but then what happened it that every time I prolong the time I spend on one work,I get soooo bored with it and just mush colors around like a maniac and ruin everything.Red rose is fine...but is the left top corner that I don't like...

I love it o_o

Even the goldleaf >.<

Maybe the blue doesn't have so much details and shadows as the red rose, but I think it's a great touch and I really like it.
I don't know what to say, I'm trying to find something wrong or something I don't like but I can't .-.

Your work is more advanced than mine so I always feel a little uncomfortable giving any negative feed back.

Over all it's a great painting, but there is something I question. The light on the right side of the vase. It looks like the light in the picture is coming from the left so shouldn't the areas I've pointed to be in shade? Perhaps you can tell me why the way you have it is correct so I can learn something.

Oh that's my crapy cam...probably reflecting light from the gold leaf...In real is not lighter...Anyway I took the example of a China vase an it's reflecting all sorts of lights and shadows allover even if the main light source is coming from the window...Take a China vase and see
And the second light...it's a glass table very shinnnny...and I didn't even draw all the lights and shadows that I've seen there(because of my bad temper and because I get bored so fast...I really need to do something about that).

Now that I look at it in the morning I think is even worse than I thought...and is not the shadows and lights but the details on the flowers....eh well next one will be better

OMG, you sound just like me. That's why I like to keep my drawings uncomplicated, at least for now. If I had that many things to get right I'm not sure I could stay with it. What you have looks very good to my beginner eye. Maybe like me, you need to forget about the rest of the painting and pick one flower to focus on, finish it right and do something else and then come back to do another flower. What do you think?

@dickhutchings Is not one flower that I get tired of but the entire work.On this one I've started a week ago and kept saying"eeeh I'll do this 2morrow I don't have time now...and 2morrow the next day" so I just got sick of it...
