Yes, Mea, that was the intent. Just to show that two different tones (values) next to each other can fool the eye into believing that it is a dent in the apple. If I leave the two values as is and shade the apple as if the light was coming from the opposite direction then it would show up as a bump ;)

Excellent revisions to the glass and drop, Cyril :clap: :clap: :clap:  The individual grapes have not yet bee separated. You need to do this by adding the darker shadows between each of them O0

Wow, Elize, you are off to a good start with the pastels.  Nice reflections on the fruit and wine bottle.

I just cannot wrap my head around this medium.

Excellent start, Elize :clap: :clap: :clap: Be careful of sharp corners at the base of bottles - must be sightly rounded.
