Fruit of the Vine

Watercolor Painting

Created by Terrece Beesley
Original watercolor painting on 140 pound Arches Cold Press watercolor paper. The painting is signed on front, lower left in the shadows. Grapes have been one of the artist's favorite subjects, which she returns to paint often. The artist uses very large round brushes, encouraging the colors to mix and blend on the paper. Negative painting was used to bring out the vines. Strokes made with the side of her brush add to the spontaneous feeling of this painting. Matted with a two inch double mat.
