Lighting Study - Caravaggio's Still Life With Fruit

Today I've started a new lighting project in Houdini, rendering in Arnold, to sharpen my skills. I decided to recreate Caravaggio's Still Life With Fruit painting as I've always had an interest in fine art and love his use of chiaroscuro.
Assets and shaders are from the Quixel Megascans library.
