After seeing Joel's answer to my question re size I tried painting this at about 1000 x 13000, 300 dpi and must say the brushes work a lot better
oh and I ate a few grapes :)

Here's a link to the ref

Looks good Jean. And great fuzzy peaches. Perhaps this could use some stronger contrasts, mainly highlights. Some parts of this are so clear, yet other places have a blurred look. Mainly around the peaches. By using lights and darks, you can still maintain the fuzzy look and get clarity. The background wall could use some variation of tone too. Even a solid colored wall will appear to have many tones in it depending on light sources.

If you wanted some shine to that table strong reflections would do the trick and really make it pop.
