Darren's Red Grapes



I finished this painting late this afternoon.  I plan to use it as my lesson for my watercolor class at Riverside Arts Center in Wapakoneta, Ohio on Monday night.  I did the work in the bottom picture yesterday, and finished it today.



This is from a beautiful photo by The Photo Guy Photography by Darren Fisher- many thanks to Darren for graciously allowing me to use his work as source photos.  Darren works out of Bardstown, Kentucky and you should check out his wonderful Facebook page.


The painting is 11 1/2 x 7" and is painted on Acquarello 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.

How perfect! I love grape paintings, for some reason, and this piece exemplifies why.

My eye was drawn to these from Blogger's thumbnail. Beautifully captured - they look delicious.

Sherry - Thank you so much - I also love grape paintings - maybe because I love grapes -especially red ones.
