Painterly Pears

Pears a l'Orange  
More pears. But more painterly this time. I added some pastel (lines) on top of the watercolour (once dry) just to loosen things up even more. I find it a challenge to paint small (this is approximately 11" x 6") and loosely using this medium. Any smaller and the image gets tighter. I think this style is more me.
Have a safe and Happy New Years - and all the best in 2012.


  1. I like this painterly approach and your point of view on the 'crimped' pears. A fresh look!

  2. Very nice. I came here from paintworks because I found your landscape interesting. Love the color in the pears!

  3. Thank you Janet. I don't use orange very often - and twice in as many paintings is unusual for me. But it seems to have worked with the dog and the pears.
