This part of two paintings that relate to biblical material that I came across in an ancient Italian church. The drawings I found there dipicted the spies in the OT bringing bundles of grapes back from Canaan to show Joshua.
I simplified my sketch as shown in (1) below and added othe figured to complement them.
(2) shows the red version, now sold, that was completed first, this one with its simple cobalt blue ground has a joyful feel about it reflecting the mood of the moment.
