Grapes Revealed - Original Oil Painting of Grapes



6 X 6 inch oil painting on 1/4” panel with the edges painted black. No frame is necessary because there is a slot in the back for a nail. Titled: "Grapes Revealed"

S O L D

A collector of mine requested 3 paintings to go next to her dining room table and this painting was to be the third and final one. After I finished, I got out the other two paintings that were to be hung next to this one and that’s when I saw my mistake. Both of the companion paintings are 5” x 5,” I accidentally grabbed a 6” x 6” panel to paint on. So, I headed back to my easel to paint this one again at the correct size. Needless to say, painting this subject a second time was much easier and it came together very quickly.

September 9 –11 Plein Air Oil Painting Workshop
There is still space for you in my September Plein Air Workshop in Laguna Beach. The workshop will focus on using a step-by-step process in order to create a successful landscape painting. Topics covered will be; how to create a strong composition, having a focal point, creating depth, brushwork (with an emphasis on how to hold your brush), paint application, time management while painting on location and color mixing. Painting demonstrations are included except on the second day when students will have the whole day to paint. Class size is limited so that each individual will receive plenty of personal instruction. Each day workshop participants will paint on location and at the end of the day there will be a constructive group critique of our work. Reserve your space today by clicking HERE!

What a fun story to go with a deliciously lovely painting. Nice to hear the second painting came together so well.
