For this still life I dropped some luscious red cherries in a plain glass and set this on a reflective black surface. I scattered a few more cherries round about, along with three glass spheres I once bought in an antique shop. The set-up was lit from above and produced some beautiful highlights and lots of light/dark effects. While I've done similar paintings of cherries before, this is the biggest one yet at 14 by 21 inches (unframed), which means that everything is larger than life. The cherries are almost plum-sized.
