Pear and Berries

Pear and Berries, Acrylic on Gessoboard, 6"x6", $100
Last winter when I was totally color starved, I bought some strawberries and spent a day setting up still lifes and photographing them for later use.  Yesterday, I decided to paint one of them.  I used a palette knife for most of the work.  I was experimenting with foreground and background colors and decided to use the pear colors for both - straight Pthalo Blue with varying amounts of Hansa Yellow Light for the background, then the same colors mixed with white for the foreground.

Note:  This painting is available through my Daily Paintworks Gallery (click icon at right).
