Need some advice

I have been drawing all my life and a few years ago started painting. I started off with acrylics and recently tried oil paints. This is the first painting I did with oil paints . It's a still life of dead flowers. How can I improve my still life paintings ? any tips or advice ? I do not get defensive so please say whatever is on your mind. Thank you .

First.. Welcome to the forum! Let me assure you that your painting isn't bad.. It's quite lovely, in fact~

Having said that I would work some on perspective.. and I would work on getting more contrast into the painting. Try to add different shades and hues of green for example in the leaves. This would show shadows and highlights better.

Very good job.. and welcome aboard :)
