"Pears on a Plate" - SOLD

Pears on a Plate drawing

Pears on a Plate - first pass of the pears

It's the time of year for red pears, and they are just gorgeous! I don't know how many paintings I can get in before I eat one of these...

I've included two process photos as well as the finished painting. The middle photo is my drawing on what was originally a yellow ground, but in getting the elipse of the plate right (see the April 4 post on this page from Carol Marine) some of it got wiped off. I kind of like this though. The bottom photo has the first pass on the pears and shadows, but the plate and background are still mostly untouched. For this painting, the pears didn't change much in the final pass. Color differences are due to the bottom two photos being taken in the studio, while the final was taken outside.


  1. That's cool Bobbi, I like seeing the process and development of your painting.

  2. Can't tell you how much I love this one. The colors are amazing! Thanks for sharing!

  3. JanettMarie, Ann, and Mary, you guys are so nice! I always wonder when I am thinking about posting a process photo, if they are really interesting to people. Thanks for the feedback!
