ANOTHER PEAR PAINTING


My friend, Sharon, wants to buy the original pears painting :)  So I'm painting another one, using different colors.  This is the start.  I do the background first, then the foregound, and do the pears last.

That's Holbein Shadow Violet in the background.  Carol Carter turned me on to it and it's my new favorite color - granulating and separating into 3 distinct colors - and so cool!

That colour is gorgeous and the granulations are beautiful - this is going to be another stunner!

Very nice start, Rhonda. And congratulations on your sale. The shadow violet reminds me of Daniel Smith's Moonglow...at least on my monitor.

Thanks, Sadami - the $ isn't in my hand yet, but I hope it will be soon (Sweetie's got a birthday coming up and Mama needs the dough!! ha ha)

Thanks, Lisa, I hope so!

Christiane, you're right - it's somewhat like Moonglow (which I also have) I should do a comparison of the two and see...

Thanks, Pam. I hope it works out.

It's a fun color, especially if you like granulation, Heather :)
