Oranges, Lemon, and Pink Grapefruit - 14" x 18" Pastel

A recent still life, painted from life. The grapefruit was a beautiful pink inside, and the tablecloth was a challenge. I love working with a blue-orange complementary palette, and so I made the background blue, even though it wasn't.

Rhonda, nice complements. The cut grapefruit has nice luminosity.
