"GRAPE STUDY" 9" X 12" Pastel

Grapes make wonderful subjects for painting. There are so many skills to be practiced in rendering them. Shadows, lights,  reflected lights, transparency, warm/cool colors, value, shapes, edges, and many others - a whole painting course in one small bunch.                                 


  1. Wow, what a nice effect of transparency and light, also like your comments about all in one bunch. Jean


  2. These grapes are really done well. I love how you captured every reflection and shadow. Wonderful work!!

  3. Thank you, Jean. As my mentor you know it was you who taught me so many of the skiils needed to paint - a "forever debt" I can never repay.

  4. Hi Bev,
    I appreciate your kind comments. They were really fun to do. Thank goodness for grocery stores as a great resource for painting subjects!
