"Pears Hugging" by Jonathan Aller

"Hugging Pears"
8 x 10 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
Happy Holidays everyone!  I've created the last painting of the pear series.  Painting these guys has been fun and challenging.  Their skin texture is pretty unique, it has smooth areas as well as rough spots.  It challenges you how to render with the paints with each area.  Pears also bruise easily and start getting spotty with time.  It definitely has a lot of translucent layers which make it more of a challenge to paint.  Overall its challenging but that's painting in general, if we don't push ourselves outside our comfort zone then it becomes harder to grow as an artist.
