Pears are another favourite subject matter of mine; these are sitting, in a shallow dish on our dining table. I usually make a display of them there; as much to draw them, as to eat them.
I love their shapes and colours; the way they lean into each other, and with their elegant stems arching this way and that, they appear to be enjoying a chat. Brown markings are starting to appear on their skin – I’ve been admiring them a little too long…
This link here, is to post I did of iPad pear paintings – accompanied with some word play.
I began with a Uni-ball ink pen.
When I started to add some black Inktense block washes, my brush accidentally slipped across a colour called “natural brown”, so I decided to use that as well – which created pleasant sepia tones.
Enjoy your weekend!
