MARCH OF THE CHERRIES

6x6 Oil on Ampersand Gessobord

This painting was completed by putting down one stroke and leaving it. No messing around was allowed - well, except a couple of places. I think by painting the cherry yesterday helped in knowing what to do and, of course, SQUINTING!! Not much value change in cherries, they are so dark. I'm please with how this painting turned out.

  6. What a delightful title! An a delightful painting, too. I like the hints of pink in the grayed background. And the shadows are great, tying each cherry to the next. Really nice composition!
