Ap-pear-antly Pears!

20x26 watercolor on Yupo synthetic paper, a product that allows pigments to sit on top and look more vibrant as they cannot soak into any tooth.  So an artist must develop textural effects to accommodate. Here in this painting done a few years ago, I have used plain Jane pears and made them come alive.

Gosh I do love your vibrant work. Never heard of this paper, must investigate as I like to experiment.
