Still life with Tomatoes, Chives and Garlic

Working on a still life painting for art publisher 'Artline'. Initially the painting featured a knife (see the day before yesterday), but my publisher thought this was too dangerous for the kids. So in the final design I put a jar with garlic. Yesterday I painted the first stage of the painting. Hope to work on it some more next week. Need to add some more chives and the tomato stems. Also I used a brown imprimatura (brown colored surface to paint on) and this makes the colors look a bit smudgy I think. Won't do that again...
