Red Pears, 14 x 14 inches, oil on canvas.
Here is a departure for me. My sweetie asked me if I can do the classical realism look. I said "I don't know, it has been a while since I tried", then bought these pears. The pears come wrapped in the tissue paper. I did this on our anniversary, so maybe there are some fidelity or partnership overtones to the painting.
I don't consider it to be done yet, I need to go over to the art store and buy some blending brushes. My kit is just not set up for fine glazing work. I may not be particularly good at this, but it is quite fun in a meditative sort of way. If it changes radically, I will post it again when I consider it finished.
