The Commission, Part 7


























Work has been coming along nicely on the painting, including the intricate designs on the bowl of cherries.

One interesting feature that you can see in this snapshot is the foundation for the 2 cherries in the lower right-hand area. I've brushed in a layer of pure Venetian Red, which will serve as a good strong base for further work on the cherries. The next step will be to model them to capture their actual shape and to apply surface details and highlights.

Wow. Channeling the Dutch masters again. Ambitious and with a beautiful sense of light. Enjoying the process and looking forward to the finish.
