You spent some time on this. Very nice study.

Very good attempt! Gosh, how I love black and white studies.

The tonal details (darks and lights) and textures you captured are gorgeous!! I do, however, have a small complaint about the composition. The openings of the fruit are very interesting to look at and I wish the image was composed in a way that it drew more attention to them.

I'm not sure how that could be done...maybe change the light direction itself, or even have the lightest object be smaller to show more of that beautiful texture of the largest (onion?)...or maybe if the image itself was cropped differently.

Not sure, but this is amazing for a first painting! :0

I'm terrible with paints! I can only do graphite/charcoal/ink properly.
