Oil on 5x7 linen panel
I made some linen panels for myself, and did this painting of a bosc pear. The pear had so many colors in it, and the longer I looked at it the more it seemed to have. Yellowish browns and pinks and greens. I used pthalo green with this one, and I think it worked much better than viridian, which is what I've been using. I seem to switch back and forth between those 2 greens. I had stained the panel with a thin layer of terra rosa, and it shows through a bit around the edges.
