Starting a new watercolor still life

Just started a new still life! I got started painting cherries last week while on vacation and just couldn’t stop.

Doesn't look like much yet but trust me, those light pencil marks are the backbone of a piece!  Look hard - you might be able to see the masking fluid.

Just started a new still life!  I got started painting cherries last week while on vacation and just couldn’t stop.  (I’ll post some pics soon.)  So this week I bought more and set a few up in my studio.

Ate the rest.  They were delicious.  I’ll have to paint fast before someone snatches my models!

The pic on the left is a detail of the initial pencil sketch.  Hard to photograph.  My camera rebelled!

More to come as the piece progresses.

Here's a shot of the still life.  You can tell I'm no art photographer!  The painting should turn out well, though, in the nice north light in my studio.

  1. Hi again! Still life is my favorite subjects… to paint (sorry for my english is terrible now) and sea landspaces but I find very difficult to paint watercolor still lifes, so, I think you are doing a great work!
