Cherries in Love

This is my submission for Paint And Draw Together's April challenge. You can check out the site and other submissions here: 

To get the background, I did an undercoating of yellow ochre and dark and light green on 8x10 panel. Then I wrapped the canvas in rice paper, using mod podge to adhere it to the panel. I painted the cherries and wood chips on top.  I didn't spend too much time on this one, but I love the colors of the cherries.

My most recent project was from Wet Canvas' Southwestern/Western Art Forum's March Challenge.  You can click on the link to see the reference photo and other people's really beautiful contributions.

This painting was a toughie.  I hope I have time to take a swing at some of the other photographs and also to dive into their April challenge.   I love the southwest and if I can't live there, at least I can travel through painting.
