SOLD -Oddment - Black vase red grapes - SOLD

" Black Vase with red grapes"
Oil on linen 2 x 2.5" ( 5,5 x 6,5 cm)

Oddment are small pieces of material; I included a US quarter for comparison.
Instead of trowing away the left over paint from the previous oil, I used it to fill up the small space, and had fun with it.

Mariano, you are amazing. Can't believe the size of this little masterpiece. Well done my friend. Happy painting.

Thanks a lot Joan, i did it to reinforce the recent lesson, also i had no much time, and used the same color left on the palette from the previous one. Glad you like it!

Wow, this is incredible - such detail in such a small piece. Great work, Mariano.

Hi Shari,
Thank you for your comment. I was going to scrape the palette from my previous painting, and than it just came to me; why not use the left over mixtures to make a small work of the same oil, it also reinforced what I learned from the previous one.
