I have been working on a sessional subject, blackberries. unfortunatly the picture was taken after the painting was framed and some reflections have spoilt the photograph, I will have to have the painting taken out and photographed again. but here is the painting.
The painting has taken several days to complete. I have painted grapes before and I use the technique of taking out the paint to get the shape and high lights, but I found it very difficult with the berries and ended up painting the with gouache so that I could add the white of the high lights later, I may have another go at painting the subject some time using my normal methods. I am still pleased with the final painting and the composition.
