Still life in oils

I’ve been thinking about painting a still life in oils for a while. I’ve only tried them in watercolour until now and I wanted to see if I could get a decent representation of the subject in this medium.

Finding a subject that is emotive and balanced is hard. I should have set up the subject myself but my photography is awful and I wanted to paint something I liked. The image keeps to a range of  warm colours, is a classic composition and is fairly straight forward to paint.

Here is the painting. My next attempt will be from a composition of my own.
