The sketch is just a guide... it a viewing of several little oasi, pits in the rocks wherein vegetation has taken hold, and show a sort of progression from isolated one on left to several on right... that is the idea anyway... is on 32"x40" foamboard [acid free of course]

Using Verithin canary yellow to line the shelf edge, and Prisma canary yellow for the rest, then added mineral orange, chocolate on the ring markings, yellow ochre, tuscan red, sepia, and Verithin dark brown over the ring marks again... then blendered...
Turning to the cherries, used crimson lake, scarlet lake, crimson red, tuscan red, with Polychromos white for the highlight... the bowl - used peach beige, chocolate, sepia, tuscan red, dark brown, and chestnut, again with Poly white for the highlight...

It seems that, for now, my inner being seeks showing various still life visualizations - so am doing another variation on my 'bowl of cherries' motif, this time showing a smaller bowl filled, and a lone cherry way over on the right... again it will be colored pencil, tho the size is yet to be determined, even as it will likely remain the 20"x30" or even the 10"x20"... in any case, will try to concentrate more on the detail of the simple objects, even as they all come from my imagination...

And with these, am again setting this aside for a time, to get involved in rendering more still life, and a landscape or two... this was done primarily for personal enjoyment anyway, as well as an exercise in seeing how extensive I can get stippling on such a scale [and which will eventually have all the board covered]...
