This painting is based on an image in the RIL; thanks to the contributor. I used Corel Painter 12 and mainly oil and acrylic brushes. All comments and advice are appreciated. Thanks.

Nice work. You got some good darks in this one. But I'm not quite sure if those are apples or tomatoes lol. Maybe some little detail could be added to make it clearer.

Looking good. :thumbsup:

I agree with LavenderFrost. They read as tomatoes to me - mostly because of the little leaves, but they could do with a little more rendering to define them better and to provide more spacial contrast and focal point. I also think the background and your shadows need a little more to ground the fruit. Hope this helps. :)

I agree, you have a nice sense of lights and darks in this one. I read them as apples, but I'm confused about the very right, it almost looks like a little face??
