Crackle Pear

Here is another 11x14 with Golden's Crackle paste---which I love. it takes several hours to crackle so I let it sit over night.
The background is scrapbook paper and layers of glazes with reductive painting-(wiping it off).
It is pretty much a "you get what you get" type of thing so you just have to be intuitive (yikes--intuitive!!) and just see what happens.


After it crackled then I laid on a dark glaze (and wiped it off to make the cracks show) and then lighter glazes to make it stay transparent and luminous. Kinda like what we do in the Pear-ology class.

And there it is---Crackle Pear!

I sure am enjoying following your blog!! Great pear, I think I need to get some crackle paste, loving the texture it gives :)

I'm trying your painting techniques with a pineapple as my subject matter right now. Check out my blog to see the progression and final painting. It will pale in comparison to yours, I'm sure!! but I love the results of your techniques and want to learn to paint this way. Thanks again for sharing!

That looks like a classic piece of art from a museum. Wonderful.

I'm an avid follower though I don't comment terribly often. Today I just want to tell you how much I enjoy all the ways you find to present pears! This crackle pear is just extraordinary and I love it. I have crackle, but keep forgetting to use it...I love the way the background colors and texture work with the crackle finish of the pear. Just a fab piece! Thanks so much for sharing.
