Two Bosc Pears in a Blue Light

Oil on Gessoed Rag Board, 8" x 7 3/8", $100.00 Bid Here
These pears were painted on a piece of rag board that had been
covered with pink gesso. I love the slight irridescent appearance
caused by laying the blue glaze over the pink. I think one of the
reasons I love oil paint so much is that it is so versatile, and you
can do so many different things with it: use it thickly, smoothly,
tranluscently (called a "half-paste" - see Titian), transparently
(a glaze), or whatever else you can think of. As long as you are
careful with your mediums and solvents and drying times, you're
OK. It's really fun, and challenging too.
Thank you for visiting today.
