I couldn't quite find a place in the studio where the sun was strong enough to draw with natural light - it was overcast today - so I used the Ott Light I bought at a garage sale. That's what gave the very strong highlights.
I realize the non grapefruit/pear/apple picture might be confusing - any guesses as to what it's from? I woke up with a vision of that picture a couple of days ago so when I went to the store yesterday I bought it so I could draw it today.
Today I got great news - a friend of mine gave me permission to paint a picture of her I was itching to paint, so now I have an image I can't wait to paint! I hope Chris will have time to build me a canvas this week so I can begin work on it on Friday! So excited!
