"Cherries and Grapes" Oil on 5x7 board

Sometimes it takes so long to decide on something to paint.  I bought these cherries and I wanted to paint them on a white cloth.  but I could not get the cloth to fall in an interesting way no matter what I did.  So, I tried a few different things and finally decided on this little espresso cup and grapes to go with them.

I started with a value sketch using acrylic raw umber, white and black on a gessoed panel.  I let that dry and continued with oils. 
...just for fun... I snapped this pic of my set up and the collection of  discarded subject items beside it.
