More about this piece
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! The painting found a home in a gorgeous house in East Anglia.
