8x5.5 mixed media of my pear, drawn today before I ate it. At first it was too pretty to eat. After studying it awhile I got out my black Pigma Micron 01 pen and Strathmore Visual Journal for mixed media and drew the whole pear. Then I cut it in half until seeds visible, and drew that along with its end and other sections including the core. Then I took apart the seeds and sketched those. Crosshatching was done for dark areas. Media used was ink, watercolor, and colored pencils; the CPs were "color-sanded" into wet areas with fine grit sandpaper so the tiny specks you see are CP pigment bits. When dry, I stamped 'pears' in black ink at the top and flicked wet paint spray. An enjoyable Bartlett pear for sure after studying it first.
