The solution was simple. Draw the complete blue vase shape, then the complete cruet, and then the lemon. That allowed me to see the drawing problem. I still have a few to correct, the perspective on the tops of the two class pieces for one. But I will need to see the real life set-up to make any more changes.
So in addition to making space for the 3 items, I have also been working of softening edges. I don't blend with my fingers so it takes alot of blending strokes varying the values.
It's coming together but lots more work to do.

I'll be working on it again on Thursday night in class with the still life set up and lit.
