Although im still trying to find my way of art, something as a source method line that finaly will set my mind, loose painting is my most favourit which im feel free to paint without limitation or obligation.
I agree with how you were able to catch the light, actually, especially in the still life. That one is my favorite, maybe because of the high contrast. I love the light on the brushes. I really like the looseness of your style. Well done on both of these.
