Tomatoes in Colander, with Basil and Napkin

In real life, the small colander is red enamel, but I didn't want that much red in the drawing. The napkin is brown, with faded edges. I made it blue instead, and I like the way the edges look. The table top is imaginary, drawn with streaks of marker to look like light-colored wood.

Copic colors used: When I plan on a lot of layering of my colors, I like to start by coloring everything with a pale base color. Base colors - Stems E000,Y000, Tomatoes R02, Colander C0, Cloth B000, Basil G40, Table E21 (streaks); Colors added on top of base colors - Stems G21,24,E41, Table E41, E44 on E21, Colander C1,3,5, Sanford Uniball silver Gel Impact pen, Basil YG03,63,G07,14,17, Tomatoes R08,24,29,W3, Cloth B1,14,26, Shadow W3,5
Paper: Neenah, 8.5x11"
