Grape Juice (7x5")

This painting was a breakthrough of sorts. I did not futz with it at all. I used a brush that was too large and put everything down in blocks and moved to the next section. The experience of painting it was fast-paced and relaxed, with things falling into place with naturalness. I think detail - too much of it - is the enemy, which I have not understood before. Backing up, both visually and emotionally, seems like the correct next step.


  1. Very well done, Jean! I like the composition and the color combination. You did a really great job on the glass. Yes, detail is the enemy!

    What type of brush and what size did you use? I have been using brights, but I just got some new filberts, and I found that they encourage me to paint with softer edges. I course I still get bogged down by details.

  2. Love the colors and the glass and juice are wonderfully painted!
