Pears on Gray, 119 SOLD
I found these great pears in the the store yesterday, the were very muddy looking and neutral, not the usual green or red I would expect. They don't even look like they would taste good but the do. I was drawn to the lack of color they had, but they also seemed to glow in all of their beigeness. I did 3 smaller paintings of them and experimented with the color I saw oozing out of the pears, they had pinks and greens and red, though very subtle. This first piece I really liked at first, but has fallen out of favor with me. The shadows are very hard, seems to upset the delicate values in the pears, but one man's transh is another man's treasure.
