Winter Light

Pears are one of the most common subjects for painting and drawing.  Simple, but also complex to capture the values to produce that round shape.  I can't say that pears are my favourite thing to paint.  Their overuse makes them seem almost too common, however, revisiting simple shapes and interesting light is always a good warm up.

Here's a short video of the steps I took getting to the final piece.  I hate the red pear by the way it looks like a block of wood no matter what I do to it! :)
