Now with cherries

Cherries 1Out with the black­ber­ries, in with the cher­ries. Now mostly done. I need to let it dry, as paint smear­ing has become a prob­lem. It needs a cou­ple of cherry stems, high­lights in the cher­ries, and a bunch of lit­tle detail work. Over­all, I’m pretty happy with it.

Palette for cher­ries: base tone is pyrol ruby with the chroma knocked down with ivory black and burnt umber. I then worked into it with mix­tures of flake white, pyrol ruby, virid­ian, and cad­mium red medium.

The ceramic on the bowl is mostly Robert Doak’s won­der­ful Fra Angelico blue.
