The long weekend is here - yippy!! have been enjoying painting time and getting ready for the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge - starts Sept 1 (hosted by Leslie Saeta). For those of you not familiar with the challenge, I will be posting a new painting each day for the month of September. Be sure to sign up to follow my blog & to receive email updates.
This weeks painting is my contribution to the WDE at WetCanvas. Thanks to my fellow Ontarian Jean for hosting and providing lovely photos in which to paint. I couldn't resist painting the beautiful light/shadows of these merry cherries. I have also included a few work in progress photos.
In light of the upcoming 30-in-30, today I decided to gift myself a new paint box (an upgrade from my old box which involved fishing through a sea of tubes to find the right colour). I picked up a fancy tackle box from Canadian Tire and fashioned this paint box. Check out the photos below!
