In the photo, the cloth and silver vase seem very warm. In the painting, they come out very cool. This was not that apparent in actuality. This is a issue I would like to explore more and understand better.

Thank you Richard - this helps a lot. Having a reference point makes all the difference in how to respond. I had read Qiang Huang's post but not pay attention enough to apply it. There is so much to learn from still lifes!
Yes I've noticed that a lot too. I think it's a combination of two things: the camera changing the colour and our eyes compensating for the overall colour of the light in the scene. For instance our brain will tell us that the table cloth is white when it's actually a warm light gray. I noticed the Qiang Huang came up with a great idea to compensate for this by placing a white electric light in the scene to compare the colours with. He used an iphone. Here's his blog post about that: http://qiang-huang.blogspot.co.nz/2012/03/harmony-under-warm-light....
