Floral Vase Still Life Pastel - Finished

"Floral Vase Still Life" 7 x 12" Pastel on Sanded Paper

I think I finally have come to terms with this one. It was difficult trying to figure out how to pull it together given a dark area and a light area of similar size. However, I increased the light area by diminishing the shadow in the background and added lots of reflected light in the area of the little pot.
The goal of this piece was to acquaint myself with my new still life items, but I think I have a piece nice enough to be framed.
