"Golden Bosc Pear"
6 x 8 in
Oil on Belgium Linen Panel
I started with a dry brush, there is no medium used in these small paintings. I have found that the painting dries much quicker when I use no medium.
I applied the local colors of the pear and formed the big forms first. Not getting too much into the deep darks, just getting a general feel of the big form turning.
Then I went into the background and base, I made the line where the background meets the base a bit more blurry so the focus stays on the pear. Then I went into the edges of the pear and blurred some areas and kept others hard.
This is the finished painting, I went back into the pear and added the smaller forms or details. I reinstated the blacks so the form can be complete, I also lightened some areas of the base so it will flow better visually with the pear. I hope you enjoyed!
