This painting was the first painting which I made after coming back from a nice trip from India. This painting, like my first painting – “Lighthouse in the Grasslands”, was painted using the impressionistic painting style. I learned about how if one side on the pear is light, then on the background, that same side should be dark, and if the other side on the pear is dark, then on the background, that same side should be light. That is because everything has light and dark colors. The choice of colors does not matter as long as it shows the same amount of light and shade. My first attempt to paint the pear did not work out well as I messed up with the light, the shades and painting the pear to its shape. In this trial, I first sketched it. Next, I wrote where I would put each color. Then, I used the Impressionistic style to paint the background and the fruit.
I painted the pear using the different shades of yellow and green color to show the light effect. I made sure that the pear looked rounded at the center by putting a tiny bit of red from the background to show the effect of the background. I also painted the stem by making sure that it kind of went inside the pear and provided shadow effect. I also showed light effect by putting in a shadow of the pear using combination of various colors along the direction of light. Finally, I added my signature in red.
You can see my painting on the following link. I have also put in the painting of the first pear that did not come out well. I am very happy that I could complete this painting after so many challenges. I hope you enjoyed reading this blog.
