Petite Painting #11 by Pamela Blaies

6" x 6"
oil on linen panel

Here is Petite Painting #11.  This painting is all about the light which seems to bounce all over this painting.  I toned the linen a bright red to start out. I think this really made a difference in the red grapes looking luminous, since the reddest-red was directly applied to the white canvas.  I used the palette knife to highlight the grapes, stem and the cup's shadow and was able to get the glass to really light up with crisp, thick pure white highlights.
