I bought grapes with the express purpose of learning to paint them, even though I dreaded all those little rabbit pellets of form grouped together - How to paint them as one mass? I separated them into smaller groups to see how they looked. Still clumpish. Then I ate some of them, carefully picking out inner grapes by the stem, to make some space in there. I took the big long bunch and laid it across a plastic turquoise bowl to get it out of the way while I ate my way to a perfectly shaped small group. Then I looked over at the long bunch hanging over the bowl, and I could see how it would be done! And I did it! Now I love grapes.
