I wont rest until I've done all the fruit in the bowl!! Not really but I do seem to have a bit of a theme going on here. This is day 1 of a pear and once again I forgot to photograph it as I went along. It has hardly any paint on really except for the background which is done in raw umber and quite thickly. The pear itself is done in raw umber and white really well watered down. All I wanted to do was to find the shape of it then I will start to build up the layers of colours tomorrow. I'm thinking that there will probably be 4 or 5 colours used in the body but I will tell you tomorrow if that ends up the case. Once again I did not start with a sketch but just blended the shape from the background colour.
