Aging bosc pear, all alone
Hard to match your mottled tone.
An assignment this week to paint fruit and look for the color and planes. My painter friend Hee June gave me a bosc pear, which seemed easy until I tried to match the unusual skin tones.
The first one is done with a brush. The second is with a knife and with brighter light.
Technical: each 6×8 oil on pumice canvas, brush and knife, respectively. Palette: permanent red, alizarin crimson, cadmium yellow light, cadmium orange, ultramarine blue, titanium white.
