A very good rendition of the photograph. It may be the photography but the colors look a little dark, a little washed out. I like the background and the bark. It's easy to see that the berry is sitting on wood.

Chandni, You have painted such a nice berry. I love the shadow under the berry it is perfect as far as shadows go. Your wood is very believeable. I think the wood could use a touch more highlight and also a little more highlight on the lonely stem. I like this painting a lot. Nice Job.

I forgot to say I love the Title.

Looking at the picture, I agree with Angela about the highlights. If anyone's confused about the title, please check my blog for the explanation :)

I just now visited your blog Chandni. I think you can remove the word 'I am new to watercolor..." :) I think your paintings reflect lot of skill with the medium and great creativity.

I specially liked the "Sunday Afternoon" painting in your blog... It evokes so many memories of my own study room!

Great job on this - but I can't find 'ugly' anywhere in this paitning except the title!

I had to pop over to your blog as I was intrigued by the title. Love it! The dark background adds to the mood also.

Old sepia atmosphere. Not enough ugly ;)
