Pears 1, 2016.

This one is called Pears 1 because I’m sure there will be lots more to follow. I love drawing pears.

They’re a wonderful recognizable shape. And yet each pear is far from perfectly shaped, which I love. Instead it’s bump-filled, wobbly, and covered in little blemishes. And while it has a simple enough shape to draw without fussing over, there is all this fun texture on the surface that you can play with once your big washes are done.
pears1Drawn directly in watercolor. The pencil texture you see on this piece was added right at the end.

Sketched again, this time in Noodlers Ink. I love how this ink granulates.
Here is my first wash/drawing, followed by the finished piece.

    Ain’t it the truth! When in doubt, paint a pear. I’ve sold so many pear paintings over the year. Probably more than all the Golden Gate Bridge paintings I’ve sold, which is a lot! I love the looseness of your pear watercolors. And those colors make me want to take a bit out of them!
