I began the second photo of the pears this way, doing the background and then the shadow/foreground drizzles.
It makes the pears look like they are melting - which they may be in this heat. Another 100F day :(
I changed the colors of the pears up a bit from the first painting where they were more green. I am liking that golden-orange-red one :) It's like going to a party where all the women are in black dresses - and then that one walks in wearing red! ha ha
Because they are going to look like they are melting down, I'm calling this
Summer of 2012 Pears.
What do you think so far?
It's not finished yet but getting close!
Sweetie and I are going to the Ft. Thomas Library to see
Art After Hours, a program of music and food and lots of paintings and photos on the walls. We may be in the show next year but didn't know about it this year. Still, quite a few artists are in that I know so it should be fun.
Hope you have something fun and artful to do this weekend. We are having a family birthday gathering and we may all have to jump in the pool (with or without swimsuits, it's so darned HOT!).
