"The Practice Grape"
4x4 oil on Canvas Paper
I should call this Abbey's Grape. Why? Because while taking a workshop from Painter Abbey Ryan,
she demonstrated how to get the luminosity of a grape. SO, the other day I bought some grapes,
mixed the same colors she used while remembering her tips .... and within 20 minutes or so - Voila!
I thought, WOW! it worked!
THEN today, Day 7 of this 30 Paintings in 30 day's challenge, I attempted another painting of the grape only on a hard canvas with the intention of making a more detailed version.
Must have worked on it for at least 3 hours and guess what?
I couldn't stop painting, it started getting overworked, muddy and of course the light kept changing. Grrrr!
In the end I wiped the canvas completely clean.... and so here you go, my first practice grape.
