Green grapes on Red Plate

6"X 6"
Ampersand Gessobord
What is the lesson about color?  You may have a set up with specific colors but they are merely color notes that can be changed as the painting progresses.  I work process which is the way that I painted when I was working purely abstractly.  In that progression colors are added and removed until the painting looks and feels right.  In this painting I was attracted to the color of the grapes and that is how I built the composition.  The translucent of the grapes just drew me right in and gave me a reason to paint.  It is a little like love at first sight.
This is my submission to Day 18 of the 30 in 30 challenge.  This painting can be found here.
