Pears are a favorite subject of mine to paint. I’ve done lots of them.It is generally better to paint 3, 5, or 7 pears and not an even number. Some think that two objects can be boring, but three is exciting! In this painting I tried to remember a technique I learned from watching Julie Ford Oliver’s web site and blog. She calls it fracturing (avoiding too many sharp edges) and she achieves wonderful results with this.
