The cherries are starting to look less appetizing in real life, but I’ve pretty much got them down.
Now for the background – the fun part! I started out putting in the line of the table but didn’t like it, so opted for a real dark ground, very wet juicy. I used Payne’s gray, Prussian blue, a little pthalo blue, and lemon and Indian yellows, dropped wet into wet.
There’s nothing like watercolor to come up with effects you’d never dream of yourself!
