Un Grappolo d'Uva



Pastel & watercolour (30x23cms)



A bunch of grapes from my garden.....there were only four bunches altogether.  This painting started out as a watercolour but I was having difficulty getting the right translucent colour for the grapes so I got my pastels out and went over the top.
I don't use pastels very often but I enjoyed working over the watercolour so I'm sure I'll be trying this again.

I have never used pastel but I love the combination watercolour/pastel! It's beautiful, Cathy!

Yes...it works wonderfully!
I've always wondered how you can be precise with pastels - do you sharpen them?

Looks great and so fresh and sweet! :) You did an amazing job with the tones and lighting, and made everything look so convincingly real!
