"Stem toward the Light" #16 of 30P/30D Challenge

6x6 Oil on Gessoed Board

Back to one of my favorite "models" :D
I see a lot of painted versions of this beautifully shaped fruit.  There's something about a Pear !  With this work, my focus was on the colors of the cast shadows and bright highlighted areas.  The extremes in light.

So, I still have to come up with 3 more paintings to be even with the date of the month.  I'm going to do my best this week to catch up. I'm talking about the 30 paintings in 30 days Challenge by Leslie Saeta. Today should be #19 instead of #16.  That's what I get for running around for a couple of days.  Back to the studio I go.
