Windfall apples and chestnuts

I forgot to blog the underpainting stage but you can still see it! I used a wipeout method with burnt umber and turps. I started putting colour on today, using cadmium lemon yellow and ultramarine blue as the main colours in the green mix adding yellow ochre and raw sienna here and there to create warmer tones.
The apples and chestnuts were collected from a friend's garden and were meant to feed our pigs but I borrowed a few for my still life.
