A fruity warmup

Just to get the brushes going.   Moved up to a 12 from an 8 – much easier to get some dry brush (not that you can see much here) on standard paper.

Tried to follow some of Charles Reid’s instructions – use local color and don’t differentiate objects from surroundings.   Didn’t really succeed on the last.

Also tried to get a greater value range – definitely feeling the power of this now.
