I finished this painting a couple of days ago for the Watercolor Passion website: www.watercolorpassion.com The project theme for this quarter is "food and drink" and so I selected a photo from the reference library of Wet Canvas which I thought fit the description well and one which I would like to paint. It was posted by Devymarie. The cup reminds me of my mother's china and I think this struck a chord in me - a nostalgic chord. Who wouldn't want fresh grapes, fig newtons and a hot cup of coffee for the perfect afternoon snack. The painting is 8" x 12" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.
