pair of pears -1 (Bosc) …oil painting

pair of pears 1

The cooling days and season of harvest inspired me to take a look at pears – to start, the golden brown colour and elegant shape of Bosc pears.

This is a small 6″x 6″ oil painting. Working at this scale is freeing since the time commitment is much less than larger pieces. It was simply a pleasure to use the alla prima technique (all done in one session) and see the piece come together quickly. With this method, the brushwork has an immediate, fresh quality that I enjoy.
