Going to try my hand with the cherries. My sister in law bought the one i did. It was her favorite of all the ones I had shown her. I want to begin doing some more tutorials after that.
I can see how doing same painting a few times really helps in comprehending alot more than the first one.

The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

Curious how many of these you've done Nolan? Doing 3 right now (did one years ago also). I am not satisfied with the 2 so far. I am aware of certain things I overlooked and will try to get the 3rd one right. If not, i will do a 4th. I am a perfectionist and I want to get this right.

These were selling well for me at one stage so have painted plenty. Practice makes perfect.

I was doing 3 but it just breaks my heart. Always end up same way because i can't leave well enough alone.
Not giving up though. Saving the best one for last as it's at a good stage yet. I am identifying problematic areas that went wrong. Repeating a painting is a good way to do this.
