Maria Cherry Gallery


Southern American Realism

These are the first pencil studies for the the egg tempra painting "Mariah". I usually do a few studies just to get the feel for the original painting. I also did one small water color for placement and color. Both are approximately 8 x 10 in size done on just plain copy pape​r. Sometimes you just pick up anything to sketch on. There is also a sketch of

her foot on a sticky note pad that goes with this set. It's actually stuck on the framed study. Gives it character I think. Most studies are pretty crude as they are thrown around while doing the original painting but some view them as collectable, so I do manage to save most of them. It does give you a vision of how a painting develops from the

first idea to the finished painting.
