I keep a bunch of fake fruits on the table for the times when I’m too lazy to get an actual fruit or vegetable, or simply can’t like with this whole quarantine deal. I just turn them and paint over and over, all I care about is the shadows on the shape ^_^ I might eventually spray-paint them some monochrome color to make it a proper study material. FYI, they sell fake fruits that look super real at hobby stores. You can spray-paint them and use as art props and great reference material.
I enjoy changing colors in artworks on these faux fruits. This time, I painted the pear fairly true to its real life color. It didn’t have the yellow or red side, so but I figured pure green pear painting would be a bit boring. Therefore, I added a splash of sunshine to this painting.
This small still life painting is 8.5 by 5.5 inch in size. It’s painted in watercolors on 138 lb paper.
