White Flowers and Dark Grapes


I wanted to do some white flowers and found some at the floral district a few weeks ago. I decided (after maybe an hour or so of taking half my cabinet of objects out) that I'd use these artificial grapes which seemed to be a dark neutral mass, and use my favorite cup. I used a bright cad orange on the bottom rim of the cup as the only bright non-neutral tone in the painting. It really pops but that was the point.
