Cherry Challenge

The same day I bought the onions I picked up a little tray of cherries for my mom. I decided to do something different and paint them in a way that goes"against" my usual style. In other words, I wanted a composition with several small items rather than a close up of one or two things.

These were quite the challenge, especially because I lacked the dark values of the cherries in my pastel set. However, by adjusting the rest of the values accordingly I was able to pull it off.

I'm so happy!!!! I keep hearing my professor's words in my head, and every time I paint I understand his teachings a little more.
