"Simple Cherries" by Jonathan Aller

"Simple Cherries"
5 x 7 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
This cherry painting was so much fun to paint.  I really enjoyed playing with the simple background and trying to get a nice design out of it.  These dark cherries have a deep red imbedded in their skin, its beautiful to see how the reds jump out.  The skin being somewhat dark also receives a lot of reflected colors from it's surrounding.  It's fun to see how I can mesh all these colors together and make it look like a cherry.

See the making of this painting on my blog:
