On a large sheet (cut from a roll) of Arches 140# coldpress paper, I wet it down and pinned it to my Gatorboard on my table to dry and get rid of the intense curve (from being rolled up for so long).
Then, using my magazine cutouts and my colored sketch, I began by putting down Winsor Newton texture medium in the upper right corner.
Not waiting for that to dry, I drew the pattern in with a thick water soluble graphite pencil and then smeared it.
Then I started on the bowl and pears. Spent a lot of time on that part before moving up to the pattern again and, using a rough bristle brush to push the texture medium around, I added some pinkish-brown color there and then painted the yellow stripe beside it down to the bowl.
At this point, I knew I wanted that blue-green vase in the painting so added it.
No drawing done except the thick water soluble grapite pencil to help me shape the roundness of the bowl before painting in color.
Time to take a break!
