How did you prep that canvas? Is that canvas painted white or left gesseoed?

This is super great detail work that I've been looking for. Wonderful lesson, Nolan.
I'm actually amazed how it really came alive with the highlights added...

(I may actually attempt this painting before my art stuff sells.)

 :thankyou:

If not now, when? If not me, who?

Rick the canvas is left as it was bought - no prep required (it's already white  ;D )

Claude the handout is in your mailbox  ;)

Nolan if we want to sell the cherry paintings can we do so?   Or do we need permission from you?

I think it might be easier to blend in oils but I had fun doing these. What size are your cherries, Nolan? Next time i will have the sense to paint bigger ones or invest in some tiny brushes. How small can you go??

Nolan, when you painted the cast shadows of the cherries on the table... did you add any medium to the paint?
