I shared some of my husband's fabulous stuffed peppers and received these wonderful pears as a trade. Being me, I marveled at the texture and character, and had to paint them at least once before they become a sweet snack . Part of the fun of painting still life is that you always have a "little something" on hand for those late night painting sessions. I am hoping these last a few days longer until I begin the big painting.
This is another study for the larger "Chess Pearings". The first study had a light wet on wet background, and I want to see the effect of the dark background without changing the first one. I am also experimenting with the chess pieces, giving them characters other than traditional. --Not sure what the rules are for that, please let me know if it's a No-No! :) Happy Painting.!
I think it is important to share our process with others, just as we gain from watching other artists work.
