Acrylic Abstract Painting

This is an acrylic I have been working on using my new acrylics. I am trying to keep the shapes very loose and focusing on the texture and colors more than the shapes but am still trying to build depth and create the feel of the shapes. The shapes are bunches of grapes :)

I still need to add in several layers of highlights and possibly add deeper shadows for the green grapes.

I knew immediately wwhen I saw the picture that they were grapes even though the piece hasn't been fully worked. The colours are gorgeous! will surely pop back in to see the end result.

Thanks so much for the encouragement on this one Vanessa, I needed it :) I had to set it aside to get a bit of space before my next "attack" :)

I has actually been really fun to paint but got to a point where I got afraid of loosing all the loose texture I had built up and had to set it aside so I was not so attached ;)
