I can’t decide if this is a silly title for this painting, but I wanted to use something other than “Plum and Grapes”. My favorite part is the bluish bloom on the fruits, hence the title.

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!

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!

More grapes today. I’m not sure if I can call these wide sizes “panoramic”, but I really enjoy painting on them.

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!

My Mom grows a small grape vine — it doesn’t bear fruit but it does give me a good supply of grape leaves for painting. I taped this leaf on a small piece of plywood. I thought the masking tape would be difficult to paint believably but it was the easiest. Overall, everything was great fun to paint — leaves and wood are some of my most favorite subjects too.

I love painting leaves but grapes are a different thing. Daily painting #14 (Grapes on Wood Block) was my first time to try painting grapes. I did not like how it turned out so for quite some time, I haven’t attempted to paint them again.

Well, I decided to overcome my fear of grapes and try again. This is the result. The biggest challenge for me was painting the bloom on the grapes.
