Oil Painting of Red Grapes on a Plate

Posted on Updated on

6 by 6 inches, oil on hardboard

Such vivid color in these grapes. I did a similar painting a year ago – this one is smaller. I used black gesso on my board. Looks so nice when a dark or colored ground shows through in spots. Sanding that oil based primer I’ve been trying doesn’t given it enough roughness. I might need to use a more coarse sandpaper. For now, I’m going back to gesso.
