After last night’s success, I was sticking with the fruit theme, and the cabbageware plate had come out really well, so why change that? But deep down inside, the cherries were worrying me, and I think I let that spoil my mojo.
This little painting put up a fight, which left it looking overworked and chalky. I was trying too hard to replicate the previous night’s experience, and I failed abysmally as a result. Despite this, the painting still contains elements that I like. Plus I learnt a lot about painting cherries, and about how I would approach them differently next time around.
