MY COMMENTS:
Hello to everyone new around here, ehem! and all the old!
Forgive my grapes they are the bane of my life.
This is an enamel bowl with fruit (just in case it is not obvious)

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Help me fix the fruit! Please?
Good bad or ugly I don't care.

I like your still life, Cap!
You just seem to have overworked the colors a bit, making them kind of muddy.

I threw it into Photoshop, increased the contrast a bit, and adjusted the colors...Hope you like!

a nice study so far
maybe some fruit darker (and not just green though dominantly is ok) and some lighter for a quick gettaway.

Photoshop made all the difference!
Thank you Madster I can see the light now.

Yep Jerry but what dark should I use? a reddish one?

Thanks for looking Alan.
I am going to try to brighten it.

I think your colors are fine. You just want to add some highlights to those grapes. I'm sure they are catching the light somewhere!

Not sure what the green thing on the right is... Apple? Pear? If it's an apple, maybe round it out a little more. If it's a pear, then a bit more modeling of that pear-y shape.

I'd bring out the table further to the left so it doesn't head directly down to the bottom left corner.

And the bottom curve of the white pot needs to be a deeper curve than the top. When you are looking down on a cylindrical shape, the curve gets deeper as you go down.

You're doing well though.. it won't take much to perfect it.
