I saw a small photo of these cherries in a Flemish language magazine, years ago, cut it out and kept it, and eventually I rediscovered it and got around to turning the idea into a painting. This is the result. I love the contrast between the high gloss of the cherries with their rich purples and pinks and the hazy greens and blues of the sun-dappled background foliage.
I thoroughly enjoyed painting these, including getting surprisingly messy spattering colours on with an old toothbrush. This involved masking out other areas with sticky-backed plastic – it felt like Blue Peter all over again!
