Blue Vase WIP

 Blue Vase WIP
oil on canvas
 9 x 12
Done in art class with Lynn Gertenbach. Today she told us that the great Richard Schmid once said that after being asked how he became such a great artist he replied that it was 20 years of working from life.  This inspired us to set up a still life and paint from life.  Lynn has so many amazing things to use for still lifes but for this we wanted to keep it simple. 
I love the background and the vase and the flowers.  I think the lemons are coming along nicely but could still use some work.  I am struggling with the grapes.  I think the key to those is to keep them simple and not try to paint every detail on every grape.
