Four sweet cherries...the first I've seen in our market...$9.99 a pound! I bought 10 to design with and hand-carried them home! The Idaho cherries will be here soon. I used several reds: alizarin, thalo red rose, rose madder, cadmium red light and medium. I couldn't find my cad red deep which I rarely use. However, next time I paint cherries I will tone the gesso board red or maybe ultramarine. It was difficult to get the darks dark enough because the dark reds are transparent, I added ultramarine and that helped. Fun experimenting as always.
