Grapes was the concept of study.......this is the first one.......funky and contemporary in style......It was interesting how the background reflected into the grapes........amazing what you can see when you start to really look! (I think I was supposed to be squinting.) I heard that from more than one teacher! They ALL say it!

Today I am posting a new picture of "Balancing Act". I did change the cast shadow to try to correct the tipping.....It is better, I think, but it is still going downhill. Now I remember why is is good to place a little something in front of an ellipse.......a leaf, a flower petal or a grape?Camouflage is an ellipse correcting technique! Next time!

This is a cute little copper pot that I have had for quite some time. I thought this flower color complimented it nicely...Flower petals can be so tricky! I have had some good days of painting, and some days of good "wipe offs". I learn as much or more from the ones I wipe! Okay, I see that I need to straighten up the pot......going decidedly downhill! Rats! Will re-post after I try to fix it.....Fixing is fun!
