Red Roses & Grapes

8"x10" Oil on stretched canvas.  SOLD

I happened upon a YouTube video of an artist by the name of Thomas Baker, who demonstrated the use of glazes to deepen shadows.  This is a method that is done after the paint has dried, at least somewhat.  It came in handy, as I started this painting a week ago, and I just got back to it today.  Tom has other YouTube videos, and he is about to release his second instructional DVD.

The pot in this painting is another of my sister Sheila's creations.
