181 Trick Pear #1
Acrylic on 8"x10" canvas panel
This was painted in Patti Mollica's excellent 5-day painting workshop entitled Paint Fast, Loose, & Bold. Patti is a wonderful instructor and I highly recommend taking a class with her if you get a chance.
I chose to do a study of this pear because I thought it was one of the more simple subject choices given to us by Patti but I struggled with it and as she was coming around to check on everyone's paintings she revealed that this was her trick pear. It looks simple but it's actually harder than it appears. Also, I need to work on my transitions from light, middle, and dark values.
This was a 45-minute timed painting.
