Pear 2...



Deze waterverfschets kostte niet meer dan 10 minuten, en ik ben blij dat ik hier ben gestopt en niet verder ben gegaan. Vooral van een afstandje is het een heel sterk beeld van een peer, ik was er verbaasd over. Ben wel benieuwd wat jullie vinden.

This watercolour sketch did not take more than 10 minutes, and I am glad I stopped here and did not add more paint. Especially from a distance it is a very strong image of a pear, it surprised me. I would love to know what you think.

Hieronder weer een kleurenstaal van de kleuren die ik heb gebruikt.
Ik heb gele oker herontdekt. Ik had deze kleur al zo lang niet gebruikt sinds de tijd dat ik nog landschappen schilderde, dat de tube bijna niet meer open ging. De combinatie oker met turquoise geeft een prachtige groene kleur.

Below another colour swatch of the colours that I used.
I rediscovered yellow ochre. I had not used this colour for a long time since my landscape painting days, the tube almost would not open. Combined with turquoise it makes a beautiful green.

Yes, I agree with you, this pear is fantastic. I like very much how the painting is done, the image really caught my eyes. I've been trying to paint in this style but never successful. Might try again and again. Thanks for sharing your technique.

It is very nice Judy. The thing that I especially love about your paintings and sketches is the soft colors and the way you let the colors float together. So it is good that you do not go further with too much detail and color. It is perfect now as it is allready. I should do this small sketches myself too, because I think that you can learn alot from them.

I like the soft and lost edges Judy, it makes the viewer travel around the image discovering it's shape. You were right to hold back from adding more to it, and that as we know for an artist, is difficult in itself :-)

Near perfect! It would be so easy to add just a bit more ..a line or a drop of color and then, realise it was not the thing to do. So hard to stop at the crucial moment! Very artful look.

Just a hint....A dreamy pear...So beautiful....
As always,Judy, you did wonder with some pigments and lot of water.

The pear is wonderful - subtle and mysterious. The colors are beautiful, Judy> I had the same problem with my tube of yellow ochre - painted shut from lack of use :)

Hi, Judy, lovely work. Colours respond well to a value structure that organised an image in rich washes. I hope you will just have fun. Cheers, Sadami

I love it Judy, it is more what you don't say in this case, gorgeous! I love your color swatch too, great exercise.

Beautiful colour combination with yellow ochre. I colour I am wary of being opaqueish. Loooove your pear, looks so juicy
