Cactus Pear #4, Pears Squared Series, 6" x 6 Pastel

Feeling Prickly???  
I thought I would try a cactus pear.  The colors are beautiful, and the shape and texture is great.  Yes, they are prickly..... note to self, "Don't touch a cactus pear.  That's why they call them prickly pears..... they have pricklies, and they hurt!"  This one started out with a very strong shadow, too strong actually.  I went in and lightened the value and I like it much better.

I used Unison, Mount Vision, Terry Ludwig, Girault, Grumbacher, and Art Spectrum pastels
