Pears Four Ways

October 12, 2011

I have this great magazine picture of a grouping of pears. I love pears. Forget apples. Fresh pears are what I look forward to in the Fall. I drew them in outline — you might have seen them in an earlier post. The next day I drew them again. And the next day again. I have four versions. Some I like better than others, but I’m considering trying this in a more finished format as a grouping of drawings for the wall above my worktable.

You’ve seen this one already.

Negative space. Meh. Not a big fan of this one.

Pitt artist pen.

And of course, the signature scribbles.

I never get tired of pears, but today I found an image of Clementines. Mmmm. Clementines…


How do I love thee?

Did I mention how much I love working a block away from the Falls Park? My love of the park and my love of my brush pens tussle in my artist heart. Except today, when they collaborated.

I was doing some rather boring studies of my shoe when I suddenly wanted some brush pen action. I didn’t notice until this morning when I scanned it that his eyes are totally crooked. Ah well, this was a really fun study. I’ll be sad when I have to return my book of van Gogh’s drawings.
