Granny Apples Comp II

This is my second attempt at the same composition in watercolor. I wanted to see it with the grapes darker.

Oils and Watercolors

I was inspired by looking at Steven Goodman's blog and the paintings he did while taking Stanley Bielen's workshop. (You can get to his blog by clicking on the link on the right side of this page; under "Other blogs to visit".) After doing the oil I wanted to do the same set up in watercolors. I've also tried another watercolor to paint the grapes darker. I'll post that one when I'm done with it.
