I haven't painted grapes in a while and they were both fun and challenging. I had to wipe down my canvas several times before I figured out the right shapes and colors. This painting turned out more impressionistic than I had planned. It could be I was inspired by a very dramatic Van Gogh movie last night called Vincent & Theo on Netflix.


  1. I love the planes on the grapes. I wish I could leave those chunky strokes! I just blend them away. Nice job on the metal bowl, too. Great shadows and reflections.

  2. I love your blocky little grapes. The color and value shifts are right on.

  3. Anytime I want to see some really nice paintings I always come here. You never let me down. Beautiful paintings.
