Really beautiful colors. Very skilled craftsmanship.
Are you somebody who grinds the pigments and prepares its own paint?
Good pÓnkish foreground and the apples with their turkoois/light-smaragd/blue is great with the orangy/brown of the cloth.
As for the cloth...looks to me that you've lost some of the
textile feel, the shapes seems bulky, I expect in a textile to see some
sharper creases and shapes.

This one's like a burrow of cellar where things ripe quietly on soft suede. That green is exquisite -- totally.

i like the mix of a color sensitive cloth
and finely represented fruit

Gavin, you seem to have taken a tremendous amount of thought with those reds. The foreground apple seems ready to roll at the slightest touch.

you developed a very nice arrangement here and apple forms are well done. material holding it all together is wrapped well and portrayed correctly without taking anything from the apples. bits of blanket get into ambiguous, but I don't think its subtracting. hard light and contrast nice. reds are greater than the greens.

have fun

i think the shadows
and relation of shapes
are important

very fine craftsmenship. kind of reminds me of a cezanne landscape...color and form..
I guess it should remind me of a still life, but who knows.

Hey brother: This is friggin' hyperreal. When did that start happening? Very dense composition, pulled off nicely. Rendering is fab.
