Deirdre, thank you very much! Don't know why are there so much orange cheese...this is probably because I like so much how this sort of cheese looks. Also, in the painting in person there is a shade difference between the two.
The client didn't see them in this stage, yet but was pleased with the paintings in progress when I showed them.
Dennis, thank you very much! ....Oh, a feast
well, not so ... The wine is still in the bottle and cheese...well, living in a small town, we haven't any cheese shop so I had only a piece of blue cheese bought from the supermarket . So that the only cheese I had in person was that blue cheese. The rest of the cheese pieces were done using photos as reference.
Most of the compositions set was done from imagination as well as the shape or the texture of cheese (even for the blue cheese, also)
This is how the set was for the third painting which its initial composition didn't have grapes and the cheese was slightly different set :
