Pears

Pears In a Bowl
watercolor on Hot Press paper
22cm x14cm / 8"5' x 5"5' 


I painted this still-life set up from life. I was attracted by the shapes, it is always great to paint such bright yellow colors.   I am working on not covering all of the paper with watercolor, hopefully allowing certain areas to breathe. It is always a challenge to put the brush down.

I wish everyone a wonderful week, I hope all of you are enjoying the end of Summer!

  10. Every time I visit I am never disappointed. You have a way with color which emotes to my senses. The delicate blue and white pattern on the rim is gorgeous next to the solidity of the pears.Lovely!

  13. This is gorgeous! I love the yellow/green pears with that blue bowl. I have the same issue, I want to fill all of the spaces with paint whether it needs it or not :-) I will try to remember your description of leaving space for it to breathe. I love that!

I hope everyone's New Year is off to a great start!

I started this painting last year and set it aside for a while.  I worked from a cell phone image I took while preparing breakfast.

My favorite way to eat avocado is on toast with a poached egg, I sketched it after Christmas. It keeps me full until lunch time.
