Berthe Morisot - Le Cerisier (The Cherry Picker). - Finished

For the final stage I added highlights, shadows and overpainted the leaves with Alkyd based oil paints to speed up the drying time ready for handing over in a few days time. I hope she likes it and thanks for following.
Awesome work and It's as beautiful as I thought it would be finished. Excellent work. Take care-Sharon

A great job, the title reminded me of a "Cherry Picker Nose".

Excellent action in this one congratz.
