My mum kept saying that I should have a go at painting some grapes.
A couple of friends suggested to use white gouache over the watercolour to get the patchy effect, but I found I didn't need it in the end. Thought they looked ok as they are. I might try the gouache suggestion next time I paint grapes though.

After painting the oil of Marlowe I felt I needed to do another watercolour.
I wanted to paint my friends Labrador Josie for a while as she is such a pretty girl. Just playing around, but it came out nicer than I expected, so I framed it up and gave it to my friend Eileen. She was very happy.
