Painted in a workshop taught by artist Patricia Schmidt: Harvest's Last Light

My newest painting called Harvest's Last Light from a photo by artist Patricia Schmidt in her workshop called Fall Grapes.  An interesting study in high contrast and the play of dramatic light.  Here the leaves dance with the shadows of leaves and the grapes glow from the last rays of sunlight before it dips over the horizon.  Painted on Arches 140 pound cold press paper.  Image Size:  14" x 10"  This painting has sold.
