Wine on the Vine

“Wine on the Vine” Watercolour 14 x 10”

This one started out by spraying the paper with clean water in a random fashion, without any sketching or using a brush, then splashing on red, yellow and blue - a triad.

Allowing the water to mix the pigments gave me a myriad of interesting colours; Let it dry completely.

Then I started ‘finding’ grapes and leaves, following the colours on the paper, and incorporating a lot of negative painting – painting around something to reveal it. Minor adjustments and a few stems completed the image. Now for some wine!
