This still life painting is not yet finished. While many would consider the compositional structure triangular, I consider it an L shape compositional structure. In looking at compositional structures, artists can identify possible problems. In the L shape structure it is important to integrate the remaining area with the L shape. It is for this reason that I used a textured pattern in the background. In this painting I am using 2 pairs of complementary hues; orange and blue, red and green. I wrote about using color to model form. I used color to model the vase, bowl and grapes. The light is from the left and the form shadow is on the right. The value on the objects gets darker (gray scale) as they turn away from the light. I was also interested in painting the translucent grapes.
