Chokecherries (Prunus virginiana)

.....This was another challenge; painting a small subject very large.  I decided to use a limited palette, a basic triad of alizarin crimson, yellow ochre and French ultramarine.  Working large forces you to work quickly, and so detail sometimes gets sacrificed.  This is our daughter’s favorite.
