D'Anjou Pear #8, Pears Squared Series, 6" x 6" Pastel

I really pushed the red in this one.  I wanted to see what would happen.  That's the beauty of painting small and doing a series, you get the opportunity to experiment, and throw caution to the wind.  It's all about experimenting, and I'm enjoying this entire exercise. My dining room table is full of different varieties of pears, hoping to get in a few more this week.  Good snacking also!

Painted on Wallis pro, using pan pastels to tone the paper, and then the assortment of softies that I've been using for this series, Unison, Mount Vision, Ludwig, Girault, Grumbacher, and Art Spectrum Pastels.
