Last week’s word challenge included red and fruit. The first thing I thought of was cherries, which took me way back when I was growing up I’d pick cherries (sweet and sour) for extra money during the summer months. So many stories I could tell . . .
I decided to do a still life of cherries that I found on pmp by photographer Alina – perfect pair of cherries. These looked like “Bing” cherries so that’s what I went with in my mind as I was painting them.
The oil pastel (5×7) was painted on Mi-Teintes pastel paper a light-grey ground. I used nearly 100% Senneliers as they handle this paper wonderfully. Hope you enjoy . . . so glad to be back painting.
