A Basket of Cherries

i used to give my mother a lot of tchotchkes and this was one of them. I painted the black background yesterday in preparation for doing the white. It’s a moody day and I was feeling a little glum but painting this cheered me up quite a bit!

    I know why it cheered you up; it’s amazing! Very cool, and I love what you’re doing with the textures! I would find this challenging (to the point I wouldn’t wanna try it)

    Thanks everyone. This is black gouache on the background, sketched in with white pencil and the rest is gouache. Red, white and black: always good.

    This is lovely! I really like the white on black, and the vibrancy of the cherries. It’s all great.
