Here's the line drawing in a neutral hard pastel.
I used hard pastels to block in the darkest values in each area.
I now see that the reflection of the apple on the left is too wide, if I had checked the
drawing a mirror before I began painting I likely would have seen my error.
Final touches on the fruit and some colorful background. I now think the background
is too bright and energetic; it competes with the apples, my center of interest.
