Session #19 - Pears

Pears and apples are of the most studied fruits by the artists: at some point in our learning path we all meet them! And again, every single painting is different. Difference is something that I encourage our group to aim for: after a few common ground directions about how to correctly draw the objects, about how to attempt paint the cloth behind the fruits and how to lay the washes to keep the light, I propose each lady to work with different colors, to find her own path. And, as you can see from the samples bellow, each painting in the end is a wonderful surprise - I am sure you would love to have them hangging on your walls (their children and grandchildren have started to ask them for custom orders!)!
