"All in the Family" #8 of 30P/30D Challenge

6x6 oil on panel

Every time I see a Grapefruit, my mouth starts to water.  I love Ruby Red's! There's nothing like fresh fruit first thing in the morning.

This painting was a particular challenge in that with using the limited colors that I am, a vibrant Orange is difficult to impossible to mix.  I have a tube of Cad. Orange and was sooooooo tempted to place some on my palette.  Nope....I fought the urge and dealt with what I had.  I have to say, I did like the end result.
