Loosening up the still life

After painting the tight and detailed view of this set up, in which the interplay of patterns of the cloth and flowers was my focus,  I decided to reexamine the still life.

This painting is looser and takes a wider view of the set up.  I decided the dark winey-purple leaves in the arrangement were too strong for my new idea and I replaced them with roses.

This is where it is now, not sure if I'm going to play around with it more.
