Bowl of Cherries


This painting needs more work. Lots of errors need to be fixed.  I thought I was being careful with the proportions of the bowl, but apparently not careful enough. I also see that the composition could have been better. The cherry stems on both the right and left sides lead your eye away from the painting. I do like the way cherries turned out, though.

A bowl full of cherries is such a simple subject, but boy,  is it ever giving me fits.

Thanks, Maga. I've reworked this several times, but still can't seem to get it to look like I imagined.

Thank you! I agree with you, I like the black background better. I've been experimenting with backgrounds and think that black or dark backgrounds make the other colors more vivid.
