Day Three

Another painting done and I enjoyed this one more.


I drew it out first, but found that frustrating. I had a lunch date and had to rush off after I finished it, thinking I’d photograph my still life set up later to post. And then I ate the grapes as I was running out the door. Of course they looked JUST LIKE in my painting. I started with a grey panel and I liked the experience of that. I’m getting a little annoyed with having to fill the whole background in; it feels uneccessary, so I prepped some panels to provide different background options. They’ll need a few coats of gesso before they’re ready, but we’ll see how that turns out. Could be good, could be a learning experience…
