I like that environment study! The colors look really nice. Some things to keep in mind would be your edges and value structure. The reference is fairly busy and it's easy to get distracted by all the detail, try and prioritize what is important and then simplify and distill it down into your study. Grouping large areas of similar value helps readability and keeping the edges sharp on important forms helps keep solidity. Especially in the foreground your brush strokes can get a bit sloppy and stop describing a whole lot of form, but if you keep your brush big and don't let your values get too jumpy or bleed into each other you can make things look photo-real without noodling. Picking a focal point in the foreground to render out would help a lot too, then you get some nice contrast with the looser parts of the painting. Keep it up!

@devin thats great advice, thank you! I tried applying it to this study:

I still need to do a couple more environment studies, but it's also time to apply it to original pieces
also couple more recent things since I haven't posted in a while:

and happy new year to everyone! one of my new years resolutions is to post more on here Smile

gift for a friend..she has a sketchbook here too, hopefully she won't see this Redface. as per my other resolution, slowly adding bgs to my drawings. I spent most of last year studying human proportions, so unsurprisingly a simple leather couch is a boss fight atm
