Two New Pear Paintings Today~

The Pear - 2010
16" x 20"
Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped Canvas

A beautiful weekend with plenty of time to paint! Finished two pear paintings that have been in the studio for a while.

The Pear - 2010 is the first large pear painting of this year. A brightly colored pear with a muted background.

The Olive Pear was painted using basically three colors. The dark color which is a mix of Ultramarine Blue and Cadmium Orange. This dark color is then used with only Naples yellow and Unbleached Titanium. This is the result--I call it The Olive Pear~

Both paintings were painted using professional artist grade acrylic paint on a gallery wrapped museum quality canvas with painted sides. Paintings were finished with a light coat of varnish.

Thanks for stopping by,

I love the placement of your leaves! They give your pears personality. Something about their angles is so captivating.
