I must accept that I don't have time to color, not now. The remainder of the restaurant items are due in a week, and I need to churn them out. I am still struggling with shading - it is far more time consuming than drawing and inking the outline. I fear I am shifting slightly to comic art style shading instead of wood cut style.

By the way, if you scroll down to the Peaches, and the Pomegranates, you'll see that these fruit as well as Figs are placed in a Triangle Composition. It's a straight forward and pleasing yet visually interesting set up. One can do the same with faces in a photo.
