This is stunning !!!! I LOVE it !!!!!!!
I can feel the fuzz. I think they're ripe and ready for eating. I tried a still life from your sort of mouse-eye perspective but wasn't quite brave enough. Maybe next time, I'll really get down to mouse level.
The sheen of the grapes and the fuzz of the peach - both rendered such that I can feel them. Thanks!
Ah, Julian! One of your most sensuous. "Peel Me a Grape" is exactly the right song for this one.
