Last week a painting challenge on Wetcanvas (online artist community) was based on the word, pear. I’ve never painted a pear before so I thought why not!
This oil pastel is a 6×6 that was based off a reference image taken by photographer, Linda Bishop of pmp. I fell in love with the photograph and knew immediately it would fit the profile of what I was looking to create.
I found out that pear shapes aren’t the easiest to paint, but I had fun learning about this particular fruit and mixing some really cool colors (my Mother would find it funny that I’m painting pears, growing up I hated them!). Don’t laugh but the foreground pear looks a bit like a lumpy potato lol ~ I’m off to work on a seascape!
