Fruit, cherries, Ann Hyde

Again I'm using Paint My Photo for inspiration.  What a really useful site it is.  (see sidebar for link to it).

Cherries the flavour of the day today....to which I am adding 2 paintings.  The first one is done in a tighter style, more detail....

and the second one is Loose.......I went straight in with pen and then the watercolour.  As you see I haven't painted all the cherries...thought it would speak for itself only painting a few of them, gives the viewer the opportunity to work it out for themselves. 

Personally I prefer this version...

  2. They are both good in their own way. Different strokes for different folks!

  3. I worked it out. My brain finished the first painting, actually it was happy to see some unpainted; and then I liked the top one with it's black background setting the bright red cherries off! Two goodies today Ann, thanks!
