5 or 6 years ago I visited a friend in Washington State. We went on a few #vineyard tours. It was an overcast day so when the sun did shine I was able to get a nice reference picture of these grapes on the vine. I was really taken with the light hitting the grapes from behind and wanted to capture the light is this painting.

When I was in high school the first drawing I remember doing was a charcoal drawing of a bunch of purple grapes. I have painted grapes in many paintings since high school. They are one of my favorite subjects.
