The Quartet...Pear-A-Tone Singer
Golden Open Acrylics on 5x7 hardboard.
These pears reminded me of performers due to their positioning and dramatic stage lighting. The one in front must be the "pear-a-tone" being featured in this number ;).
This is my contribution to the WDE at Wet Canvas. Kay graciously supplied the photos to choose from.
I first coated the support with black gesso. I then used a white Prismacolor pencil to sketch in the placement of the pears.
I'm still having a time trying to achieve the brushstrokes like I can get with oils. But this came out better than my previous attempts with the open acrylics. Maybe I'll catch on after a few more.
