Starting a still life

Work in progress
I bought some fake fruit at Michaels last week with the intention of painting some still lifes. I decided to borrow from the techniques of my last couple paintings and start with a black pastel sketch on a canvas prepped with clear gesso, followed by some glazing fluid to morph the line drawing into a grisaille underpainting. Right now my fruit platter is floating in space. I haven't decided what will be in the background. Stay tuned for further developments.
