Trauben (30/40cm) by MedeaSafir Trauben (30/40cm) by MedeaSafir
oil on cotton board (study in glazing technique)
foto-update after vernish
a big thank you to :iconlefthand666: and his step-by-step tutorial Still Life With Grapes. Step by step. by Lefthand666 of 17 layers.
my WIP: Trauben WIP-Collage by MedeaSafir  of about 12 layers

i finally get over my fear and started oil painting in layers. because of time pressure and a deadline (its a present which i personally hand over soon) i didnt manage to go through all the 17 layers. unfortunatelly i had to speed up the process and on the top of that i didnt calculate all the time for drying very well. but all in all it was a really great experience and it opend a whole other dimension of painting with all its almost boundless possibilities. there is certainly a potential of getting addicted to this kind of adding one layer after the other to achieve a better result in tansitions or brightness of the color with all its vibrant shades.

as i am working with water-soluble-oils (branded COBRA i highly recommend) i add the suitable painting mediums for getting oil'er from one layer to another. that was also a big challange to me. never done this befor and was not really conscious what i've been doing. but well, there is no other way to get own experience as to learn and to grow while doing...

and please, dont expect an exact copy - cut some details here and there and finally speed the detail-layers up to 1 out of 4 Facepalm  also didnt manage to get that great 'real-look' of the tutorial with the really excellent color-shades and the incredible condensing of the waterdrops Lonely  i did my best in this stage of my artistic journey. regardless of all that small insufficiencies i am very confident with the result and hope it will appeal the same way to my presenteeLove [...and it already did :D]

this is a beautiful and unusual still-life. i really like your attention to light and shade, the grapes look real, and you have achieved the effect of gravity with them really well too!

Magdalena, this is very nice. i like the way you painted water drops in details especial
btw, the main secret of glazing - never hurry up ;)  that's what I learned when worked on this tutorial.
i think you could add more white in the background of grapes to make them shine brighter in the end, and to add some glazing above black dots to smooth them a little.
Good luck in mastering oil techniques and thanks for sharing!

this 'main secret' i had to experience in a very hard way all by myself :rofl:
thank you for stopping by and commenting - the piece is already given away and firnised so unfortunatelly i cant change anything anymore Lonely
but i've taken a picture of the firnised work and will try to get the colors better coming out according to the original work...
thx again for your kindness Heart
