June the month of the cherries
A nice subject, when you can get enough of them, cherries to draw ! I started drawing them in 2003 as a small still life, then I continued painting this colourful and nice fruit trying to respect the usual rules of the botanical art.
Cherries are cultivated plants, but I discovered that in Mugello, part of Tuscan region, they grow in wild, big trees as an element of the local flora, expecially in the hight hills with a cool climate. At the end of June there are no cherries anymore, because of the birds, that have all the fruits eaten.
Where are the cherries I drew gone ?
|The first drawing I did is in a forgotten sketchbook|
|The second is in Amsterdam|
|The third (wild plant) is still framed and it was in Berlin for an exibition last year|
|The fourth (wild plant) I gave as a present to a friend|
|The last is in Jarnie's sketchbook|
