Grape Hyacinths

These sweet little grapes are blooming in my garden. Instead of picking, I’ve painted them. I did a more realistic version first and then I just wanted to do a color expression.

I am in the north of France, sitting outside with my Winsor & Newton color box, musing and doing some art journaling. Memories of Provence: I am thinking of blue and purple lavender and succulents on rocky ochre grounds. There is something with the light of this region, an abundance of beautiful light that makes my creative heart sing.
