I do indeed love this painting. Grapes are one fruit I always have in the home as yet I have never attempted to paint them maybe bacuse I am too busy eating them. I so love the use of colour you have it feels so real. I have to say I also enjoy a glass of white wine so you have me on every level.

Wonderful transparency. I love the colors you used they're almost like confetti grapes! I'd like some of those, please.

Nice glow on the grapes! I like the blues you've got in there - interesting colours.

Beautiful color and lighting. I love how they look so transparent.

Oooh....aaaah.... They almost have the look of fine jade here Carol! I like the unique composition with the platter set at an angle also.

They absolutely glow! Love the variety of turquoises and light greens and that red ground popping through is delicious. Beautifully painted!

Crystal Cook said...

Just beautiful Carol. I haven't painted grapes before, but I'm thinking I might give it a go. Lovely colors!

A difficult subject, in my opinion, and you did it so well! Great job...

Debbie said...

Yes, those are delicious looking! I love the turquoise coming through Carol. Very inspiring... must have a try with those colours!

You have certainly captured the wonderfully reflective quality of these grapes. Probably one of the nicest renderings I have seen of this subject! It makes one realize how much color there is on a subject if we actually take the time to look! Hmmm...I think I need to be adding a few more dabs of reflective color on my urban scenes. Love the strawberry too! Food for thought, and for the tummy.

You did a wonderful job on these grapes. The teal and turquoise accents and the red under painting showing through really make it sing.

You captured a glowing luminosity in these.
