First of 2009!!

Happy 2009!!

It's good to be back painting after all the Christmas and Hogmany chaos!
Here's another small still life continuing my series, in this one I liked how the shadow patterns linked the cherries and keep the eye moving around the composition

Three cherries
Acrylic on canvas
8 x 8 inches
Back to Leith School of Art tomorrow- term 2 kicks off and I'm really excited. I really enjoyed the first term, which culminated in a exhibition of all the students' work. I was amazed at how many people were there, and not just for the free wine!!

Hey Ryan, cool composition and I agree the stems connecting in shadow but not in light is great

Solid work on this one...very good shadows and forms.
