Diane Mannion, CHERRIES, 6x8"oil
Quick study of cherries in a bowl on a scrap of heavy, floorcloth canvas. This surface was much slicker than my usual surfaces, gesso, linen, or regular canvas, which caused me to use a much heavier application of paint. Also attempted to leave strokes as they landed and not blend too much. If the bowl appears a tiny bit lopsided, it's because it was handmade on the wheel by me!
