Pears - Umber

Pears - Umber

Piece description from the artist

The ‘Pear’ paintings are part of a series of I’m doing for color workshops I will be teaching so the originals are not for sale. As a group they are so beautiful and would look wonderful hung en masse or just a few of them. The originals are all 5 × 7 inches on linen and feature various types of limited palettes. For the studies, the same still life set up is used over and over again so that the change of color, or colors, can easily be compared without being distracted or confused by other subjects.

Umber is a transparent color and in this painting instead of using white to lighten I rubbed back to the white or near white of the canvas.. Monochromatic paintings are part of the traditional tools of a painter and it's always fun and challenging to see just how far one can push the light through dark tones. This painting has a rather romantic feel to it.
