    Were either of these from real life?

    I guess you mean the 2nd is from real life?
    Personally if these are the only ones you've done, I'd just keep going and do ten more. And then more and more and occasionally update them here if you have some specific problem.
    Maybe I'd suggest you trying to finish them bit more tightly (lots of fuzzy, unfinished edges and areas) and also work more in grayscale so you can see the form without getting side-tracked by the colour.

    Good start. Now do a ton more

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    Maybe try looking more carefully at the colors in the shadows and bounced light, for the second the greenish fruit doesn't really look like it's sitting on a red surface even though I see you've put a little bit of red light on the edge there I'm not sure if it would just affect the very edge and maybe it would affect more of the side of the round fruit as well...

    Good start. As you get more comfortable with it, refine the painting more.

    Yes I would agree with what others here are saying. Going forward, focus on introducing some sharper edges to the forms and try to pay a little more attention to bounce light and color. Tinybird's comment about starting in grayscale is another great suggestion. I still have trouble with color myself so I recommend that approach. But I would definitely do these from life whenever possible. Set up some fruit at home, light it, and fire away!

    Looking good though, making me want to practice still life painting too.

    Here's something I did in acrylic, had a lot of trouble sharpening the edges.
