SHADES OF GRAPES and Wax paper

SHADES OF GRAPES
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.

  1. Martha, this is a gorgeous painting of grapes. Using the waxed paper is a technique I am not familiar with but it certainly worked great for you.
