Grapes seem like such a nice subject to paint until you realize you have to paint every single grape. Argh!
I'm using cobalt blue, indigo & perylene violet.

I do like all the interesting shapes in the leaves. When I paint them, I just try to paint the shapes I see in my reference photo and don't try to think of the shapes as leaves. It all seems to work out in the end.


  1. How about painting every single brick on a building like I do? Double aaaargh! I love your style-it's so nice.

  2. Kathleen,
    This painting is beautiful! I love how the image is so light struck and the varying colors of the grapes! Fab!
