Wow, this is coming along really well! The pears are wonderful, and the grapes are beautiful already. I think pastels are a great choice for rendering this still life. Thanks for joining this weekend and sharing your WIP! I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished painting!

A couple more hours. I don't feel like I made much progress, but must have. Can't work 2 hours solid and NOT progress, surely! I'm trying to think how I can "Cezanne" it up a bit. Maybe outlines on all the grapes? I had thought to use the pastels in a more painterly manner, but I primed the wrong side of the canvass paper, and it's too rough to get solid pastel on without really blending it a lot. Probably still a couple more hours to get finished. We'll see where it goes tomorrow.

It's coming along beautifully, Kerri. Time well spent!

Since you asked for suggestions: I think Cezanne might have used a cheerful, colorful table covering and maybe given it some folds (I know, ugh on making folds). Also, maybe a bit more red and orange? Dark crimson might be used as the dark value between the grapes? And yes, maybe some outlining on the grapes but not too bold.

Those grapes have certainly caught the light nicely and the pears look solid. On to the bowl!....
