I bought our first batch of cherries this past weekend at the Pleasanton Farmer’s market. They did not disappoint – a perfect balance of sweetness. They are my favorite summer treat. The market was wonderful – ran into a friend – kept our distance. It was just so nice to be together, even briefly.
This is a small painting – acrylic on a panel 6×6.
Which are your favories? Bing or Rainier?
For me, this is how it typically starts when doing a still life. I like to make sure that the background color feels right. This is a classic case of using the complimentary color (red and green). It is also the time when I step back and make sure that I like the positioning/composition of the objects. I will add more details as I go!
