Grape Harvest

"Grape Harvest"
8.5" x 5.5" ~ Watercolor on Paper


I wanted to pay special attention to these grapes to keep their powdery white film (bloom) in place. As well as giving them an inner glow and plumpness. Those leaves really caught some nice backlight too! Hope you like them....:-)

You are amazing. I've been lurking on your sight for awhile. Love the way you capture light in all your paintings. And you work so well in both watercolor and oils. What a talent you have.

Hi Beth, you 'lurk' all you want around my blog...:-). Thank you for your kind comments.

Thank you Christiane.

Hi Maria! The backgrounds are just glaze upon glaze until it get to the smoothness I want.

Thank you Cindy!

I saw this painting this morning and it absolutely took my breath away. As an artist this is just the kind of work I aspire to. You have captured the essence of light in this painting as it comes to life before your very eyes. Your work is OUTSTANDING!!

another one of those "wow" paintings. I love the darkness in the background... and the light of the leaves.
