still life painting - cherries finished

I struggled a little bit with this one but it's all about the journey! Part of the problem was not having quite the right reds. Red is a funny colour with such a big range. The blue makes a fantastic highlight but working out the order in which to lay the colours so that they don't turn to mud is going to take a bit more practice. The preceding photos are to show the work in progress.

  1. These are beautifully rendered, Elena. It looks like your reds are "spot-on" - so much so that I want to run to the market and get some cherries!
