Completed Painting: Cherries

I recently discovered the Rookie Painter blog via the talented painter Suzanne Berry. I decided to participate in this challenge. She posts a photo and everyone who wants to participate sends her a photo of the final painting.

Here is the original photo ( to prepare for my painting I upped the saturation on my end which isn't shown in this photo, but you can see in the photos below):

and my final 5 by 7 acrylic painting on wood (still not loving working on wood even with gesso):

Sometimes I really like the palette I'm working on when I finish. The colors are so pretty!
