Pears - Wet in Wet
Though I began this second attempt for something FAR looser than this came out, I did vary the technique by adding wet washes into and/or over wet washes. I did this twice on both pears .... very very WET!!! Still when they dried, the bottom of the red pear was a bit blue, so I added the tiniest bit of red glaze. There was far less careful application of paint, waiting for the pears to dry only once, and more of letting the paint mix on the paper and bringing all that watery paint to the bottom of the pears to form the shadows.
Still, when I look at this, other than aspects of depth, it looks pretty much the same to me in color and hue variety .... does it to you?
We're off to a green industry 'field day' today - classes and exhibits for our industry -- so I'll be out of pocket until late tonight ...
Hope your day is great!
