Still Life: Grapes and Pears with Rice Bowl

This is today's daily offering to the painting muse - it is 6" x 8" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed Fabriano-Artistico watercolor paper.  The source is from a Wet Canvas photo image photograph  submitted by M Prince. This is the painting I will be teaching at Riverside Art Center next Monday evening.

Hello, Barb,
Have missed checking in about your daily paintings.
Will now catch up!
This is a real beauty of the pears and grapes....two of my favorite fruits! I love the shadow quality on the pears!

Thanks so much, Elsie! The pears are my favorite part. I tried to use some "lost" edges on them and think it worked.
