more pears...

I wasn't watching the video along with him when I painted these pears. These exercises are just to establish lights and darks but I couldn't leave well enough alone and had to add some stamps and punchanella. On a few of them I also added the dark charcoal which may or may not have helped. You can see that I didn't put the charcoal on the aqua one on the right. All in all I am having fun trying to get really free and loosen up.

I struggle with lighting - but then I don't practice and should, I think.
These are wonderful.

If you don't put your own spin on your work, it's not yours...just a copy. Glad you're having fun!

Really nice color on the pears, Martha. Also, wanted to say how much I have enjoyed your Colordrop flowers watercolor on-line class. These flowers are a hoot to make and always, always turn out pretty.
