    All - around awesome ^_^ I think you definitely succeeded in getting that "painterly realism" you were looking for.

    Woah that's cool!
    One crit tho, you have these nice sharp shadows under the larger fruits but the grape casts none - you might want to add castshadows on the right to tie the image together a bit more.
    Also ... on the pears, you could add a hint of a sharp edge were shdow meets light,near the center of the mass. It is very apparent on the reference you used and helps making the fruit rendering coherent with the general lighting (top down), kindof defining the 'B' profile of the fuit since light hits it twice - one time at the top, one time at middle height. I know I'm not very clear ... I can make a quick mockup/paintover if you want. I like to call that effect the 'butt dimple trick' if you see what I mean :P
