    Dear Tammy,
    I like how all of the objects within this composition interconnect, enabling one’s eye to move throughout the piece. In future paintings explore allowing the tones from one object to appear in the neighboring objects. For example, introducing a minute amount of warmth into the cool, gray teapot. Your ability to use color and model the forms through light, shadow and pushing the value is working fairly well. The yellow candle could have been developed a bit more by introducing some darker tones on the left side in order to turn the form a bit more convincingly. Mixing a very small amount of raw umber into the yellow would be one option, or using the compliment of yellow to lower its intensity and gray it down a bit.

    Good luck with your future pieces!
