"Vertical on Glass"

I had a tough day of painting today. I did one before this that turned out just terrible. Orange insides are tough because you can either go really specific and get in every little seed and highlight, or you can generalize it, as I do. And when you generalize it, you have to get the values and saturations and placement just right, even though you are suggesting things with bigger brushstrokes. I don't think I got everything just right here, so it's not the most glowy orange insides I've done, but I am really happy with the composition, and the leaning slices vs. the straight ones ... I have to admit something about this really speaks to me.
Please forgive me, it's late, I'm tired, and I'm babbling ...
