Completed Cherries

I like the qualities of this board. It has an even surface but quite a bit of tooth and takes the colored pencil easily. The colors move around almost like pastel and its easy to work dark to light. The colorful reflections in the cherries captured my eye and my goal was to achieve the bright colors and shiny reflections in the cherries.

I agree with Kathy - beautifully done! I am curious as to whether you are going to frame this with or without glass.

Thank you! I'm going to frame it without glass, I just finished spraying the piece with Kamar Varnish. Two coats seemed to be enough.

Cherries! I love cherries ;-) It's beautiful and colorful.

Your trip to Italy looks like it was wonderful. Lucky you!

I have a small piece of this board that I now want to try.
