"Winter Light on Fruit"

"Winter Light on Fruit"
13" x 17.5"
Watercolor on Arches 300 CP

This is my painting that was accepted into the 2007 Watercolor Art Society-Houston International Exhibit. I painted this in watercolor using a limited palette (3 to 5 colors) for maximum color harmony. My layering technique gives the fruit a natural glow, with light coming from a window which is just out of view. I used a photo that I took last winter as my source. Not sure if this comes across on screen, but the cherries seem to jump out of the painting! I have limited edition signed Giclee prints available for purchase. If you are interested, please e-mail me for details.
