Fruit, grapes, Ann Hyde

GRAPES

I didn't use pencil first for this one. Just went straight in with paint...which was

Pyrrol Red (Daniel Smith) with a little Ultramarine Blue (Winsor & Newton) - to which I varied the combo 
thus giving redder grapes or bluer grapes

The greens were basic - Ultramarine Blue with Cad. yellow pale (Winsor & Newton)

when this had all dried, I went over with Safari Al-Star pen to define.

    1. Thanks Joan, I've enjoyed drawing them. For some reason there is something very relaxing about drawing and painting fruit.
