Everything was going nicely...


I was on a roll...painting greeting cards and managing to do more keepers than throw aways.
Perfect season to do a little grape still life. I bought 5 lbs of them because they were so beautiful and tasty, too.

I just plunked a small bunch on my table to draw and paint. Everything was going quite nicely until I got a little hungry.

So, the bunch got a little smaller.

I put the first wash on and the bunch got a little smaller.

Well, I had them pictured in my mind so I didn't really need them all to finish the painting.

The bunch got really small and the pile of the little bits of stem got bigger.

As I finished the painting, I looked for the grapes and they were gone! Good thing I captured them in a little painting.

LOL!
Sounds like what I would do. What I did do though was buy three peppers, an orange, a yellow and a red. They were so pretty in the store and I thought I would do a still life. Well, like many of my still life plans, they rotted before I got to paint them! At least you got to enjoy your grapes:)
