Cherries Overboard

Cherries Overboard, 8x8 oil on canvas. Bid on eBay
This is the first of 2 paintings with this arrangement. I don't usually add table cloths and linens mostly because I don't use them in my home so it doesn't come naturally. I thought it would be a good exercise to explore folds and see how far I can push the highlights before it going to far. I think I may have to incorporate this in some of my larger paintings as it is a great tool for adding a degree of rhythm and of course guiding the eye to the focal point.
