(5x8)

A what-was-at-hand study from last night. I wanted to paint the grapes without painting all the grapes, if you know what I mean! I painted this without any drawing, though, after the paper was dry, I did go in with a pencil and define a few individual grapes in the wettest part at right so I could put shadows on or behind them.
I'm happy with the grapes themselves, but wish I had arranged the cluster in a more a interesting way and given more thought to the shadows: such things should be considered even when doing a little practice piece; it should be part of the "practice."

I think you got them perfectly, espcially the color.

Excellent, just right!

Perfect! I love the color variation, the combination of lost and found edges, and the loosely indicated shadow. This is lovely, Laura, don't be too hard on yourself!
