Painting Pairs of Pears

pear purple watercolor

I’ve been wanting to watercolor pears…

They seem like a fun loose subject, so I decided to give them a try one evening this past week.

I started with this purple one – because…

why not?!!?!

Then I did this more realistic colored one in golds and brown tones.

After painting that pair, I was still enjoying, and wanted to be even more creative, so I decided to try one in patriotic colors of red, white, and blue.Β  For the “white,” I used frisket to mask, and peeled it off when dry.

Then I wanted to do one even more colorful and looser, so I did this rainbow pear.Β  A little out there – eh?!?

It was fun to take the same basic shape and make so many different images with it.

Yep – painting pairs of pears is what I do…


life in between.

Cheers & Hugs,
