I'm having the students play with colors and backgrounds, varying color combinations, playing with complements, etc. Using simple pears - anyone can draw a pear! - and then having a background around them. Everyone did it their own way, either rows of pears, or just a trio of pears as a still life or a single pear on a sheet.
Here are a couple rows of my pears - unfinished because I began with the background colors in each one. It will be fun to choose the colors I want each pear to be, based on the energy of the background.
A busy Friday, Saturday and Sunday coming up so will catch you again Monday, I hope.
