Pears, Grapes and some Flowers...

I love to paint pears and I have always thought pears were very hard to paint. So I decided to try the pears with my color drop method and they were surprisingly easy to paint. Pears have a bumpy irregular shape so the dropping in of the color helps accentuate the irregularities of the pear. The watercolor does the work for you. I did go back after it was dry and glaze in the deeper shadows of the pear. I did very lightly outline a couple of them but I decided that sometimes the outline might not add anything. These were actually three different pears that I combined together in Photoshop. The shadow on the pear on the  right isn't correct. That bothers me. Ok, now for the grapes. Pretty good but actually I am not sure if the black line helps or hinders. I'll try some more.
These are some color drop flowers with a script stamp in the background. Fun!
