A week ago, I posted the last installment of my still life of a pitcher with fruit. This began with a photo to capture the moment, and then I worked from the real thing until I had to consume the ripened fruit. I used one of the pears for this recipe.
Now all I have left for models are the pitcher-planter, of course, and one pear (not one of the originals). Today I added another layer of Cadmium Yellow Pale to change the color of the table and brighten the leaves and pears. Then I used Cerulean Blue to darken the background, leaves, pears, plums, and shadows.
I am stalling on the pitcher, because I don’t want to ruin it. I will be adding a limited amount of paint to it, just for the shadows.
