A Grape Bunch - garden grapes & compliments

A Grape Bunch    oil     10"x 7"
detail -  A Grape Bunch
I had this color scheme in mind's eye this morning, before I had a subject to go with it. It uses the compliments of red violet and yellow green. So, even when I searched and found my photo from many years ago, I painted this from my imagination for the most part. The brushwork got fairly thick at the end, and  hopefully the detail shot will help to show it. 
Pin It
