Grapes with Texture
"Grapes with Texture" is another watercolor that started with lots of random shapes and colors painted onto the paper. Then, gradually the shapes emerged by painting positive shapes and then embellishing them. The background was painted behind the shapes. Details were added with both a fine brush and by lifting out details to get branches to show. Colors were adjusted to get complementary colors next to each other to give more "pop" to the colors.
