Glistening Cherries

Is that really colored pencil?  Yes! And in this video recording of her live workshop, Carmen will show you step by step how to make your cherries glisten and glow, too, as you follow along.  Watch how she does it, then try it yourself.  You'll have anytime-always video access. Learn at your own speed... and refer to it again and again.

Begin with a value study in white, then gradually add color, starting with light reds and going ever darker to recreate these plump, vivid, eye-popping bombs of glistening color.  Access the video workshop at
