Day 8 - Back at it with Cuties and Grapes

"Cuties and Grapes"
8 x 10" oil on Gessobord

After a day off, I felt more energized this morning and decided to finish a painting I had started over the holidays.  I had the oil sketch done so this is mostly painted today.  So this would make my 6th completed painting for the challenge.  I also have my half painting from Tuesday, which I will get back to.

My concept for this painting was to have the cuties emerge into the light and I'm happy with the way it turned out.  My resource was abandoned early on and was just for the plate/dish and the cuties.  I added the grapes, and enhanced the lighting concept.

Much research into how to handle grapes in shadow and grapes in light to get this baby done.

This is a "big" painting for me...usually painting in the 4 x 4 to 6 x 6" range.
