Grape Arbor - 30 in 30 Challenge, Day 15

Grape Arbor      9" x 6"    oil on panel
Today I used an unusual palette again, but one that is a bit more broad than yesterday's. I blocked in the basic diamond shape that I had in my head for a bunch of grapes. That was done primarily in Ultramarine Blue Deep. I also used a few dashes of Terra Rosa and Indian Yellow. Those three colors with white, were my palette and I liked the way they worked together as I built up the middle and lighter values.The blue and terra rosa mixed a dark that was nearly black and it worked great for the drama of the shadows underneath.
