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.

Every painting has so much to study. Colors, as you mix them and place one near the other. Great, thank you!
