Postcard Painting #11: Grapes

Laura spend Sunday afternoon teaching me watercolor techniques. Super helpful! since I started watercoloring without knowing any.

It's all about the properties of water, she said.

Watery-me likes that, and my 3-hour still life looks properly watercolor-y. I prefer this bulky sketch (below) I did afterward. 
It took about 10 minutes, but that's deceptive: really, it's the result of me paying close attention for a long time beforehand.

Thank you, Laura!

These juicy shapes and colors made me check the refrigerator for grapes. Whew!

Yes, after painting the grapes, we ate them!
