Final Painting of Norton Grapes for the Tradescant Exhibition

In the post "BAEE Artists to Exhibit in London", I mentioned that I will be sending a painting of Norton grapes to the exhibition. During a class taught by Anne-Marie Evans MBE last April, I worked on the Virginia bluebells only part of the time and concentrated on finishing my painting for the Tradescant Exhibition, for which the paintings were due about the first of June. The Norton's grapes have been a huge challenge. I am indebted to Chrysalis Vineyards in Virginia for letting me take samples of grapes, vines, and leaves during the course of my work on this subject. This is my final painting of the grapes for the exhibition.
