This is quite a timely post. I’ve been staring at the sky for a few minutes each night for the past two or three nights waiting to see some shooting stars from the latest meteor shower. I’ve read that they are most visible close to dawn, but I don’t stay up very late at night and I don’t wake up that early either. Anyhow, I’ve been lucky enough to see one — there’s just something awesome about shooting stars in the sky.

This is the second daily painting today since I missed posting yesterday.

I wanted to try something “creative”. I taped a branch of grape vine to a piece of paper and drew in the grapes with red marker pens. I was thinking along the lines of trompe l’oeil.

The challenge was to make the leaves and the branch look very realistic in order to make the outline of the grapes look like they were just drawn and not part of the “real” branch.

Here’s something a little new today. With the help of my brother, David, I made a video as I was painting this. This is my very first video demonstration. I wasn’t able to post anything yesterday because I was trying to figure out how to do this properly.

In the movie, you will see the progress of this painting — from blank board to the final stage. I filmed most of the painting process, but I wasn’t able to include the last few minutes because I ran out of tape! Anyway, I sped this up quite a bit to make it fit the 10-minute limit for YouTube videos.

I hope to do more demonstrations like this in the future. Comments and suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Please let me know what you like about it (and what you don’t like!) so that I can improve future videos. Enjoy!

I have done two paintings of grapes before. Although I love eating grapes, painting them was a different story. Getting the bloom on the grapes to look right was difficult and I also had trouble keeping the paint smooth. Anyway, I tried it once again and this was the result. I am quite pleased with it. It was great fun to do…I can’t imagine why I didn’t paint grapes more often!
