Cheeries aLa Pink Limoge
This painting of cheeries and china is one of 4 that I have drawn off. My original idea was to teach myself how to paint the gold trim on the china, but I have really benefited from the glazing of the cheeries. Started off way to timidly with my reds and had to go back in and reglaze them many times. However, I did get depth and I couldn't seem to get it with just one pass. Good learning curve for me. I think I enjoyed painting the china the most. May go back in and tweak the left hand top and side a bit more, but it's my practice to live with a painting for several days before I call it done. I am going to change the colors slightly on several of the other drawings and will probably redraw this on a half sheet size. We'll see just ambitious I can get with a larger piece.
