"Cherries & Marble" by Jonathan Aller

"Cherries & Marble"
5 x 7 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
Cherries on marble have a great look to it I was beyond excited to get this painting started when I paired them up.  The slick smooth surface on the cherries I think meshes well with the rough textures on the marble, I also like the shine on the cherries.  As stated before painting marble is very challenging but glad I keep doing it because it teaches me something new every time.  Looking at these cherries for such a long time while painting them was torture for not being able to eat them, needless to say when I finished painting them I enjoyed every bite of it. 

You can see the making of this painting on my blog:
