As much as I love the way the shading on the apples looks, I've got to admit that filling in the basket isn't a whole lot of fun.
There are lots of shades of lighter and darker brown and there's not a repetitive pattern to it all. It'll totally be worth it once it's done, but it's so easy to lose track of where I am and what I'm doing. If something unexpected pulls my attention away I have a hard time finding my place again.
The curve of an apple or the edge of a leaf is easy. The weave of the basket isn't.
