Three Cherries Shadows Reflections

How do you make a light intense vibrant red?  If you add white you wind up with pink, so the trick is to make all the dark reds almost black and leave the light reds pure saturated color, straight out of the tube.  When I paint cherries I pick the red ones to paint so that I have somewhere to go with my dark colors.  This suits my family just fine because they like to eat the darker sweeter ones.
