These are some of my initial sketches.
This one is the sketch we decided to go with.
Off to the art store to buy some warm colours and fancy papers. I decided that the base of this painting will be a paper collage. This will add texture to the piece. Also, I don't like painting on canvas.
Some experimentation with paint and paper before I went to work on the canvas. I'm adding green to compliment the red berries.
This is what I have so far... there is still lots to be done. I think I'll have time to work on it this week a bit because school has briefly quieted down. I can't wait to paint the berries!
