Gold Pear Painting, Instructions and Supply

Gold Pear Painting, Instructions and Supply.

This painting was created for the painting classes, is a simple and charming painting of a Gold Pear. A perfect exercise for learning to blend, a technique that is vey important in acrylic or oil painting.

Gold Pear PaintingThis variety of pear is referred to as a Taylor’s Golden or simply the Gold Pear. Similar to the Comice Pear in appearance, the Gold Pear has a smooth outer skin that is thin and easily broken that covers a sweet white, juicy inner flesh which provides a pleasantly sweet aroma.

Click on the image to see a larger painting >>

Instructions:

  1. Start by drawing the pear, thinking about light and shade.
  2. In this painting I did an under-paint of Yellow Ochre and Gold with acrylics because they dry faster. The under paint is very important because you are continuing to draw with colors and defining light and shade in your final painting.
  3. Paint the background first. Including the table and shade of the pear.
  4. Enjoy doing your painting, blending the gold colors of the pear.
  5. Sign your work of art
