This is a 9x12 done on Canson Watercolor 140lb. paper with Derwent Watercolor Pencils. It was done with no water to give it a textured look.
While showing folks some of my art, I kept being asked,"Do you have any pictures of fruit?" I asked them the obvious question, "What kind of fruit?" Their replies included pears most of the time, sooo, I decided to do more than pears and give them a choice of fruits to please their pallete. For the pear lovers, I sliced a pear in half on a cutting board with the "paring knife" (Stage Left). Can you smell the aroma of the freshly sliced pear? :-)
Giving the bowl a transparent look was the most difficult part for me in producing this picture, but, I am fairly pleased with the result. SO WERE ALL THOSE PEAR LOVERS!
HOPE YOU ENJOY AND HAVE A GREAT PAINT DAY!!
