Re: My try at painting a Cherry

I like this ! It has nice volume and the shadow color shift(s) are awesome! Next thing to think on - is: edges!

Re: My try at painting a Cherry

Douglas and Inmystudio (Deborah) Thanks so much.

Thank you Alison, Yes I did have a problem with the grayness of the under painting it made it too cool. But you are right the dark part worked out the best. The mid tones are where it did not work well so I pretty much had to repaint those areas. I guess if I had used a warmer color like Burnt Sienna and the Black on the cast shadow it may have worked out better.

Maureen and Bettie Thanks you are both too kind.

Raymo ,I can see you are trouble. LOL

Thanks Kevin, yes I can see what you mean I don’t want it to look like I pasted it on. I should not have made the receding edges so sharp. I will try to figure out how to soften them next time.

Mz Sketch Pad thanks, love your avatar . too cute
