I found this great photo in the RL and decided to give it a go. Thankyou so much to the contributor. The crystal was very challenging to say the least but the grapes were fun to do.
Any comments or suggestions appreciated as always,
Thanks for looking,

Hi Linda, this looks terrific. The glass is very convincing. One thing though, the foot to the glass seems a little off elliptically. Aside from that, great job.

Very good! Those grapes are amazing and the crystal too! My only tiny crit is I'm not sure the elipse on the bottom of the glass is quite right but overall a wonderful job.

Linda, what an absolutely stunning painting. That crystal glass is amazing.
You have also achieved a very good translucency in the grapes. They really look succulent.
Wonderful work. Terrific painting of the glass.

Thankyou so much everyone. Your wonderful comments are appreciated. I will try to fix the foot of the glass as I see it is off a bit.
Linda: so nice to see such fine handling of acrylics. You do acrylic painters "proud". Everything is working so well in this. Wonderful rendering of a strong still life composition.

Beautifully executed. This is such a strong still life composition. I love the crystal glass.

Thankyou for your comments Coast and Derek. All the credit must go to the contributor in the RL for this great composition. I'm sorry I can't remember who it belongs to but you know who you are. Well done!

I tend to agree with the comments regarding the ellipse forming the base of the glass but it is a minor point and hardly detracts from the overall quality of the painting.

Thankyou all so much for your kind words. I still have to work on that eclipse but I seem to have lost steam on this one. Maybe in a few days.
