Ruby Red Grapefruit

I was at Marina's to paint again this Wednesday. She had some big grapefruit and we decided to see if we could produce and interesting composition with the fruit and a simple plate. I started by blocking my composition in with burnt umber, which has lent a warmish tone to the painting, and then laid in greyed down tones of the colours of the objects. I think this treatment of the subject has given the piece sort of an antique look.
