Two more pear and plucot paintings. one painted direct and the other is one of the earlier value studies glazed with color. My camera doesn’t seem to want to register turquoise. The colors are way off in these especially the backgrounds which are turquoise in both paintings. I messed with them quite a bit in Photoshop trying to get the color right but it just made them look weird so I’ve posted them without any of the color adjustments.

Glazed Pear

I admire the paintings of Deborah Paris who uses an indirect painting method. I had those value studies sitting around from last week so I decided to try some glazing.

This is after a couple of layers but I think I need to get some softer brushes for the technique to be effective.

Deborah Paris explains her method here.
