All Done with Cherry Pie Painting





















This is a small "tutorial" of sorts, to show the process I mostly use for a still life painting with a set up. I couldn't think backwards, so you'll have to scroll down to the post that says, Beginning, and then go in reverse order to actually see the progression. Sorry about that. Now that I see this posted, I can tell that I still need to blend in that small spot of reflected orange light in the green shadow. For the rest though, I will call it done. The highlights on the cherries are added, and the blending is completed. Thanks for looking, hope you enjoy the mini explanation.

Thanks for posting this tutorial, I LOVE to see how others do their thing! And what patience you have, to take photos during the process. I´ve tried to do that, but after a while, when I get into the painting, I forget to take pics of it...
I love the painting itself too, that pie looks yummy...

This is a great tutorial! You broke it down in all the right places, making it really easy to see the process. Even better that you had a mistake to correct - and it all turned out looking so yummy!
Thanks! :-)

Thanks for going to the trouble to document your process - it is always facinating to me to see other's process. I love your dessert paintings, they are more beautiful than the real food...all of the sudden I am craving cherry pie...

Hi Nel,
This was great to see! I just got back from my trip and am excited to get back to learning with oils so this was a great refresher in the steps. I remembered at dinner one night in Mexico that I'd forgotten (in all the trip preparations) to send you a check for the painting before I left. I'm really sorry and will get it off to you Monday.
