Back in the groove

Day 20 grapes
6 x 6
Acrylic on canvas

After yesterdays frustration and for the first time feeling the pressure of this 30 in 30 challenge I was full of trepidation on todays start.  So back to basics and a favourite subject, grapes.  Why grapes?  A myriad of colors, opaque and translucent and an infinite choice of composition.  Fast, loose and fun -  well it did get a little annoying when my highlights kept drying darker than the darks.  One of the reasons I'll be switching back to oils when all this is done.

Cool painting with lovely little bits of warm. Looks good enough to eat!
