Pear Trio

Part of the reason I keep this blog is to connect with other artist's visually about my work, my challenges, and experiments. This is one of those times I am not sure whether to post an image that I wouldn't want just everywhere. So take this one with a grain of salt.
I have three different angles of pears and I was trying to look at using three values on each pear to achieve volume. I like the back two, but the front pear gave me trouble. Also I don't think there is enough difference in value. Cad. yellow is very powerful, and I might have used more red to warm up one angle on the front pear, as I got on the back two. Once I used the Phalo in the yellow, I couldn't get back to a clean color.
I could have used more variety of violet in the background too.
I ate two of the pears, so will have to go to the store to try another one.

  1. These pears look luscious on the purple background. I can see why you ate them!
