'Grapes and Apples' still life abstract



I have been reading a wonderful book on how to make the most of your paintings and have learned so much. In this painting I concentrated on the composition. It is important to have a well balanced composition with easy passages and interesting transitions. It was also very important that I keep a fresh clean palette.
