Oil painting on hardboard

I can remember when I was just starting out as a daily painter that I hated to do grapes. I thought then that they were just too difficult to paint correctly. Anyway, they are now a favorite subject of mine. I find it really gratifying to see the little berries come to life as I paint the bloom!

One of my most favorite painting of grapes that I have done is the one above. This will be the last grapes painting included in the 365 Daily Paintings so I thought I’d compile all that I have done since the beginning…well, let’s start with the second that I did since the first one was what made me hate painting grapes in the first place!

    Wonderful painting! I hope you don’t mind, but I have been talking about the use of edges in my blog ( and mentioned this as a great example of using edges as a means to control focus in a painting. I also enjoyed seeing all of your grape paintings!

    So you didn’t like painting grapes? Hard to believe for these are such wonderful little pieces f art Faith! Love the dark, dark purple contrasting against the golden orange background and the simple white bowl.

    Your technique is flawless and I always love the lovely simplicity of the compositions. This one with it’s dark purple grapes looks perfect on the
    Turmeric background. Great combination!

    Thank so much for sharing your other equally masterful grape paintings!

    When I first look at the Grapes in Small Bowl painting. I thought it is a true picture. I never thought that it is just paint. That painting is made by an amazing painter I am sure about that.
