Still Life Cherries and Cornacopia Vase

 I haven't done a still life in a while so for a change of pace I did this one. I had bought this cornucopia vase off a seller on Etsy because I liked the shape of it and its ability to hold fruit or other objects for still lifes.  I also like the light value it has so there will be a nice contrast to whatever I place in it.

I used top lighting in this painting placing the shadows right under the rim of the vase and emphasizing the color of the cherries.

this is beautifully done Pat. I love the vase and it's sculptural feel. The cherries are he perfect contrast.
