Two Flutes With Five Pears
This painting was created in watercolor for the May Project of the Watercolor Workshop yahoo group "all paint from one photo." The photo was provided by member Jane James.
This painting is 11" x 13" and is painted on 140 lb. Fabriano Artistico cold-pressed watercolor paper. I drew it free hand from the photograph and it was painted mostly wet-on-dry in a very controlled manner because I wanted it to be realistic and depict the reflections in the glass and the light on the fruit. I also wanted to show how shadows also have many colors in them - they are just not grey. This was a challenge, but was very rewarding to paint.
