Paintings with cherries!

'Jug with Lemons and Cherries'
12" x 16"
oil on stretched canvas

This afternoon I've been busy adding cherries to these three paintings! Have a look and see what you think. In the painting above 'Jug with Lemons and Cherries' I'm happy that the composition is now complete both in terms of space and of colour.  

'Green Apple with Jug'
6" x 6"
oil on  board

In 'Green Apple with Jug' the cherry becomes a compelling focal point. And along with the two red leaves, it creates a triangle in space which again leads to a stronger composition

'Delicious Biscotti'
8" x 8"
oil on board

Before I added the cherries to 'Delicious Biscotti',  the biscotti looked a little lonely and were crying out for something to sit next to them! However, now I'm glad to say, all is well, and again I feel the composition is complete. 


  1. Morning Ann.
    All lovely still life paintings here, but the biscotti painting is a brilliant depiction of the wrapping. And it was a must that you put them Cherries where they are for the balance of it all. All wonderful Ann. All the best.
