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.
