embroidery shading, movement and color


i have been working on getting thread to work like paint - showing movement and shadows. i took a charcoal drawing that i had made and translated it into stitch. mostly i like the apple made of french knots, even tho it looks like a pomegranate. can you tell those are bananas on the lower right hand side? hmmm...not too sure about them.
