Original Oil Painting Still Life by Window

Still life by Window

12" x 12"
Painted on gessobord. 
My biggest challenge in this painting was to create a strong light source coming through the lace curtain. The cherries on the branch needed to be back lit  and cast shadows on leaves behind them. To create interest, I also made the leaves let some of the light show through. Once I did the branch in front of the window everything seem to pop. The painting came alive! 
Thanks for viewing! Please feel free to leave comments.
