Title: Grapes !V
Media: watercolor on Arches cold press
Size of original: 5.5 x 14.5 inches
I love nature and working with the leaves and grapes, gradually bringing out their structure, the shadows and play of light.
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.
