A study of Cherries Work in Progress












The above piece was done for the Abstract Art, Traditional Art & Collectors June Group Challenge. We were given a choice of 6 reference photos to work from I chose this one. You can see the work in progress in the above photos. The top pic is the "real" photo. I always start at the back of the painting and work my way forward. Adding shadows and highlights last.


The painting itself is postcard size 4" x 6" acrylic. You can find it listed here on Ebay

Southie! WOW! YOWZA! WOW! Gorgeous reference photo and you really did it justice. Don't tell me - the dark background enticed you :)

The plate of cherries below is also wonderful.
