Fruit bowl with new pastel pencils

I was given a set of Carbothello pastel pencils for Christmas and this is my first drawing with them, plus some conte soft pastels for final highlights.(Markedly more successful than the same subject in oil paints (up to attempt 4 and counting )

I think you should try another still life. This is beautiful. The CarbOthello's seem to suit you.

You created such a believable sense of volume on each one of the fruits (clementines?) and you clearly know how to use those new pencils!
