My good friend, Rose, recently brought me a small photo of grapes with wine which she found in the "life" section of the newspaper. She, and I both thought it would make a great subject for a painting for my class. This painting is approximately 9"x 12" and is painted on Fluid 100 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper. This is basically a limited palette painting in 99% greens and yellow with a little red added to the green to get the dark green of the leaf and the shadows in the grapes. I don't know who the photographer is, so I can't give credits. I made some changes when I drew it and added some things that weren't originally in the photo.
We like to drink wine while we paint in class, so this painting is very appropriate for us!!!
