My Lemonade Pitcher with Pears

This is the latest  project painting that I have prepared for my watercolor class at Riverside Art Center in Wapakoneta, Ohio.  The subject is a lemonade pitcher which my husband and I bought several years ago in West Virginia along with 6 hand thrown clay cups. I added 2 Bosc pears to the still life before photographing.  The painting is approx 9" x 12" and is transparent watercolor with black acrylic background.  It is painted on 140 lb. Fabriano Artistico cold-pressed watercolor paper.

A beautiful set up, and the black background really throws the pitcher and pear towards us !
