"Pears Galore" was done as a demonstration in an adult weekly afternoon watercolor class. Students drew their own composition, tracing pear shapes. Then they applied an under painting, painted the background, then layered, shaded, and splattered the pears, fun was had by all.
I just love this horse, I finished this a while ago, but have to hide it from the horse's owner, she buys every painting, pastel, pencil drawing that I have done of him. I finished an oil pastel of him and posted on facebook and she asked my how much. I wouldn't tell her, I just asked her if she really had room for another painting of him. I won't torture her by posting this one on facebook.
