Orange Slices, Blue Plate

This is the painting from yesterday, which I completed after dark, so I couldn't photograph it. I am trying to work with some strong color again. I saw on someone's blog that they did the drawing with magenta, so I tried it as opposed to thinned burnt umber. Then it made me crazy
when it appeared in a place I didn't want it. I also used a pink underpainting in the hopes it would help the green relate to the purples in the plate. It's astounding what you can find on people's blogs, I'm so grateful. You could probably learn how to do an operation!
