Red, White and Blueberries

Thank you, Ruth, for the idea to use a dark color rather than black to add the punch to this piece. Although, I see that on my monitor the darks look almost black, they are a dark maroon/purple. The black was too harsh, but the added darks enhance the playfulness in this painting.

Something I did differently here was to use watercolor paint rather than acrylic for the added darks.
