Title: Grapes II Blue-green
Media: watercolor on Arches cold press
Size of original: 12 x 8 inches
I love painting layers of color on the leaves and grapes to gradually reveal their structure, the shadows and play of light.
The Process: The leaves are painted with pigment on the vein side, then pressed on wet paper. More watercolor is applied to the wet paper and wax paper grapes are pressed on the paper. When this is completely dry, leaves and wax paper are removed to reveal the basic design structure. Painting one layer after another gradually builds depth and definition in the image.
