Peared Up

Peared Up - study, 6 x 8

This is the last of the six I painted on Wednesday, and I made myself "finish" in 30 minutes, good or bad. Sometimes that builds in looseness and is successful, sometimes it's just disastrous. I definitely could've created a better painting, but playing with the gold tones and keeping it loose were my two goals, and I did accomplish that.

I like peared up- great idea to finish one in 30 were already warmed up after the first 5 and just whipped this beauty out:) I am really interested in your unified colors in the still lifes- love the looseness...strokes are awesome...favorite moment is the little bit of darker reddish in the middle pear! Just wonderful.
