Bowl, etc

8X10 Oil on canvas.

I finally finished a painting!

When a painting takes as long as this one, fruit subjects don't work

I found this jug and the metal bowl at a thrift store and the grapes are from memory


How does it look?

Re: Bowl, etc

Looks great - but from the scale, the grapes look a little large.
Love your metal and the vase! The materials ready very well.

Those vessels look really good to me Bill.
Maybe call the grapes olives instead then the size works better

Charming. I agree the grapes are olives.

You sense of color / value is always wonderful.

FWIW you can use fresh fruit. Just replace when the spots and rot start, and continue painting. As long as you have the same general shape and size, the new one will match for shadows, values....

Thanks, all, for looking and commenting.
OK, the grapes are olives.
Where are the martinis?

Looks great! Love the metal bowl. You must have some stainless steel paint.

Definitely olives with that red vessel. The silver/stainless is spot on! Excellent!

Re: Bowl, etc

The jug (vase) appears to have some unusual shapeliness to it to my eye, but wonderful color rendering keeps the impression of the curve of the shape well enough that it doesn't draw too much attention. Really like that bright metal bowl a lot though, the sense of matte reflection on it is evident and feels good!

Thanks all, for looking and commenting.
Delo- that jug is deceptively difficult to draw so yes, I probably could have spent more time on it.

I'll be using it again, so I'll have another chance.
