Pears and pears
 Four pears, ten minutes each. 10"x10" oil on canvas

Lots of pears by my classmates at the YMCA Art Center in Sunbury, PA

This is my first blog ever.  I did the Four Pears as part of an online workshop facilitated by Richard Robinson (a New Zealander) at The Complete Painter web site.  First we did a black and white sketch, then we painted a value study of a naked pear. Next we painted a full color study of the pear, then the 4 pears at ten minutes each.  I showed the results to my fellow students at the Y Art Center and they liked it so much that we are all doing the challenges.  As you can see, we have only completed the value studies.  Next week I will post the results of the color studies.
