Red Pear on Doily

12x9 watercolor on Strathmore 140 lb cold press paper, a short demo this afternoon for my art students.  I drew a pear outline in white Crayola crayon, then laid in quinacridone gold, gamboge, arylide yellow, orange, red, UB, carbazole violet, and permanent rose.  Stenciled the doily using paper and painting the holes.  Colored pencil in purple was sanded over wet wash for texture; water spritzing, splatters, and spritzing colored dilute wc paint was done for more texture.  I even added Caran D'Ache watersoluble wax crayon lower right of the pear and the stem. Finally a background multicolored wash was loosely applied with manganese blue, green gold, and a mix of UB/alizarin crimson for the shadow when totally dry.  Just a little fun one using primary colors.
