SHADES OF GRAPES and Wax paper

Watercolor 11x14
I began this painting by wetting the paper and applying bright shades of mauve and purple where I wanted the grapes and shades of blue and green for the leaf areas. I then cut oval shapes from wax paper and placed them randomly on the paper to create the grapes. When everything was dry I did a lot of negative painting to pull the shapes forward.
