This painting was done from a photo I had taken last summer. I also bought some new cherries to add to the picture and to use as reference.
I began this painting a little differently, it is painted on a canvas panel that I applied 3 or 4 extra coats of gesso to, and sanded to smooth out the texture of the canvas. I thought I would try an acrylic underpainting. so, I loosely painted it in with acrylics, and when it dried, I completely painted over it with oil.
Below is a picture of the underpainting stage....
Hope you like it! and Thank you for looking at my artwork today!
