"Basket with Clementines and Strawberries" Oil on 6x8 inch board

These are some of my favorite subjects to paint, strawberries and oranges, especially a peeled orange! Painted from life.  

Below are some "work in progress" pics.  I don't usually start with a white surface.  Most of the time I tone my surface with a thin mix of raw umber, and let it dry before starting to paint.  But, I was just impatient to start this one, and I didn't have a pre toned board to use. 

It worked out ok, but I think I like painting on a prepared surface better than right onto the white gesso.
