What I have been working on for a few days...still trying out different brushes in Painter X I did the grapes with the artists pastel chalk, not that it helped me any still can't get the feel of green grapes...but someday I will LOL I used some brushes in Photoshop for the background ,crack brush, and for the bowl...the ref was from our RIL :wave:

Some of those grapes should be in deep shadow...according to the apparent light source...be careful about that!

Everything is great. I think that what is happening with the grapes is that they are missing the more pronounced hightlights that give them their shininess.

I redid the grapes and hopefully they are better...I don't know anymore I have looked at green for so many hours now I'm seeing green! :lol:

Looking much better. On the areas of shadow, you might add some reds. It will help.
