Apples and Rainier Cherries

When I saw the Rainier Cherries I never expected them to be as difficult to paint as they actually were. The photo washed them out a bit. There are more colors in the cherries in person and they are a bit richer. I couldn't believe how many different variations of color could fit into something so small.
I tried to find apples that matched the colors of the cherries.The background is again painted in layers so that it is dark but also transparent making it richer and giving it depth. I prefer that to painting the background a solid dark color.
