Grapefruit In Four, and A Bit About Underpaintings

 "Grapefruit in Four"
8 x 8 inches, oil on canvas

You can see a lot of my underpainting here - I start with a dull orange wet-tone on the canvas, then add darks and pull out lights, laying in my composition first with the dull orange mixture, then adding alizarin crimson and dioxazine purple for the darkest darks.
