Day 50!

Grape Study
Oil on Canvas
5 x 7
I have to say this is the first time I have made an effort to
really study how light effects grapes. I can now see
why they are painted so often. They are fascinating
to look closely at. The normal rules of shading don't apply here,
I'm guessing due to their transparency. Grab a grape the
next chance you get. Notice which part is lighter and which part darker.
Which part is a warm green and which part is a cool green.
It might surprise you.
