what a lovely pair




















I saw these William pears on a fruit stall the other day and had to get them. I love their shapes, just lovely to draw.

These were drawn with charcoal and pastels (top photo), and then painted over with acrylic gel medium. Once the medium was dry, I dragged a dry brush lightly loaded with white gesso across the top (bottom photo).

very, very nice pair of pears! I have a whole pear thing going on in my house. I have a mural of a blue tree with 9 yellow pears and 3 ravens, and on another wall I have a bunch of miniature pear paintings and pear plates. Pears help me accept my weight gain because I think they're beautiful, as are many larger women :)
