Rookie cherries – a painting a day

   size 6 in x 4.5 in 15cm x 12cm watercolour on heavy weight rag paper

The wind continues and slowly weakens. There was enough rain in the night to refill the waterbutt, things do at least look damp again for the first time in a month. Lots of apples have blown off the trees so I made an apple sauce by quartering them and coring them…it was edible but tart,  not fluffy as it will be when the cookers are ripe.

I have sold a number of pictures in the last fortnight, this has led me to revise the prices on some in order to slow down the sale of the paintings that fit well into a particular niche. I may hold some back altogether in order to make coherent sets for framing and exhibition later.

On the subject of sales I am going away for a while to do some painting. If I can master the technology I will post as often as possible. However I will not be able to post i.e. mail any sold items so will lengthen all the e-bay auctions and put Etsy on vacation mode.

Today I painted some more cherries but from a photographic reference posted on Rookie Painter challenge. Is it possible to tell that these are from a photo and the previous cherries were from life? I can’t tell until my eye is detuned from the new painting and sees it fresh.
