Yellow pear 5


Yes, I know, it's more green than yellow...just not ripe yet. But the title stands.

Husband buys pear, Wife paints pear, Husband eats pear. Symbiosis.

Hi Jala, wonderful brushwork on this pear, and good to see you make full use of your pear.

Vaery beautiful greens. I struggle with greens! Your husband really should've waited until it was ripe....

The title stands, the pear lays down.
It's just enough yellow and just enough green and more than just enough beautiful.

Wonderful, Jala!!

I love how it just melts into the background!!

perfect symbiosis! You and hubby also a great pair....

Jala Pfaff said...

Rahina - Yep, nothing wasted around here. :)

Gregory - Thank you. Indeed, it was all about the light in this one.

Dewberry - Thanks. I had to redo that side a lot until finally getting it right.

Carolyn - Thanks. Yep, I really do. They're all so different and have such personality. If I could paint only one fruit for the rest of time, it'd definitely be pears.

Leslie, Kim - Thank you. I don't like any tube greens. My favorite greens at this point come from Prussian Blue plus various yellows. Such was the case in this one.

Bonnie - "The title stands, the pear lays down"- Ha! You made me laugh when I read that. :)

Marian - I think I should've softened some edges even more, in retrospect. Nevertheless, I'm glad. Thanks.

Liz - The Husband and I don't often exhibit perfection in our attempts at symbiosis, but in this case, yes. :)
