Ripest Cherries

10.25x9 watercolor and ink on sketchbook paper done today.  Using a Micron 01 pen I sketched the cherry fruit outlines and stems.  I could not find my tube of Daniel Smith thalo blue green or turquoise so mixed thalo blue with green to get this hue for a complementary color scheme.  Reds are:  Grumbacher red, transparent pyrrol orange, permanent rose, alizarin crimson, quinacridone violet, carbazole violet, then indigo.

Your cherries look good enough to eat, Kay. Seriously! I must be hungry.
