Cherries - Finished Drawing



Here's the finished drawing of Cherries. I'll start painting when we get back from our trip in a few weeks. I'll try experimenting with different backgrounds before even starting on the cherries. I'm also sure I'll paint at least one study, probably two, before working on the 'real' painting.

On Saturday we're off to Portland, Oregon to stay at the wonderful Benson Hotel, then Crater Lake, Oregon, staying with daughter and grandson at the Lodge, then to Jacksonville, Oregon to see good friends...all for fun and Bill's birthday.

I'm taking my pencils and drawing board to do some work while sipping wine and lounging about! See you soon.

Here are the three possible set ups of pears that I plan to begin. Let me know which one you like. Standing Pears, Sitting in the Brown Bowl Pears, or Elegant in Silver Pears....You can email me if you'd rather comment that way, susanbonnell@olympus.net. Thanks in advance.
