PearsPears this week are $1 a pound here! I love pears any way, but especially in a salad with red Boston lettuce, almonds and blue cheese. Last night we added pomegranate seeds.
I did the charcoal drawing of the pears last night. It was, more or less, a contour drawing or continuous line drawing. I concentrated on the fruit first, getting in the bowl here and there as I came to it with the continuous line.
This morning in class, I did the painting. I was demonstrating layering and tying colors together. Four is an awkward number in a composition, and I was trying to show how repeating colors can tie things together, so they aren't too separate. In tomorrow's class I'm going to try to have the colors bleed together a bit to tie the objects together.
