Think about the shape of grape vines, leaves, and grape clusters. Go look at some if you can. Sketch a few. Here are some steps to get you started.
When you have your drawing the way you want it, go over it with ink and a calligraphy pen, starting at the top (to keep your hand out of the ink).
1
As you draw your grapes, remember to use thick and thin strokes with your calligraphy pen.
2
Add grape names in different calligraphy styles (a new one for each). Concord grapes are my favorite juice grapes (and they makes a yummy table wine).
3
Pinot Grigio grapes make a lovely white wine, even though their grapes are a red-yellow-brown color.
4
Riesling grapes make delicious white wine. Lovely with good cheese and some fresh, crusty bread.
5
When the ink is dry and you've erased the pencil lines, it's time to add some color. Let's start with a background of green for the leaves.
6
Then, paint backgrounds for the grapes. Concord are blue-purple, Pinot Grigio are red-yellow-brown, and Riesling are yellow.
7
Let it dry completely. It might look something like this.
Add a final layer of watercolor to create more definition. We'll start with the leaves. Don't worry about staying in the lines (unless you want toπŸ˜‰).
8
Paint round concord grapes. You can offset them from the drawing to create the look of a cluster.
9
Paint Pinot Grigio grapes. Leave white areas on some grapes for highlights.
10
Paint Riesling grapes. Make some darker than others to add dimension.
11
And you're finished.
12
Maybe you want to try drawing some bees next as you think about mead.
