Around the Studio ... Red Grapes

Red Grapes in Glass Bowl (work in progress)
30 by 40 inches
oil on canvas

The last ten days of rainy Florida weather has made it impossible to shoot a picture of this ongoing painting. But, today is blue skies and sunny, so I can post this for you.

I love the shadow shapes and colors created by this backlit bowl of grapes. The real challenge was to capture my delight in this humble subject, while presenting the elegant translucency and deep violet shadow colors of the round fruit. A little more work needs to be done with the light reflections in the bowl.
