I'll tell you, the little storm troop in the clear glass vase is SUPER, not to mention everything else.
Looking forward my friend. May the force be with you.

Thanks my friend, I'm working on all the little facets of the glass dish right now, it will really 'flatter' the grapes when finished

Appreciate the kind words, the grapes took a lot of time but I'm very satisfied with them.

Thank you so much John, I have enough to paint without the reference quarter!

Thanks Delo, I appreciate the very kind words, and I'm glad you stopped in. You've done great work around here recently and you always have something intelligent to add to any discussion.

It would be my worst nightmare to attempt to paint that realistic but I can certainly appreciate your beautiful work.

Thanks, all the detail is my bread and butter. I get really locked in and focused when I'm painting a particularly detailed area.

Thanks Paul for the kind words and well wishes. Hopefully I can sway some folks into the world of taking 3 days to paint a grape.

Thanks so much, all this fruit really requires many value and color changes. Plus a whole extra step for textures, one I haven't done yet on anything but the grapes.

Alan, thatís the most amazing thing Iíve ever seen. Most of us canít even conceive of that level of painting; itís incredible. Thank you so tremendously much for showing the way you work. I couldnít have imagined it, still canít quite believe it. Btw, you have a wicked sense of humor!

Thank you Ju-Ju, if you like my work you can look up my name and click on 'find all threads started by Alan P. in OC' and see the rest of my WIPs.

You'll get a glimpse of what I consider a 'finished product' and all the final details and steps. The only things finished on this painting are the background, vase, 1 stormtrooper, the flower, and the grapes .
