Summer Fruit Painting from Grayscale Beginning

A trio of nectarines purchased yesterday have been on a table in my studio most of the day. I've enjoyed painting them in a number of different arrangements, but this rendering is my favorite. The painting is 8x10 inches on a gessoed panel. I began with an acrylic underpainting to gauge the values and then glazed with transparent oil color. I'm looking forward to more paintings of the ripening summer fruit that is coming into season. Since these aren't quite ripe, I'll be painting them again tomorrow!
