Two Pears--Work in Progress (WIP)

(Two Pears, Pastelbord, 6" x 6")

I'm not happy with this image, but this is the best photograph I could get of this piece. In real life, the piece has more orange overall, especially the background and the shadows on the table. It's almost finished. I need to work on the contrast and values.

This was enjoyable to paint. Knowing what Neocolors to use for the underpainting seems like the most challenging part of this technique. I think I learned the proper pressure for burnishing with the bristle brush just by working on this piece. The speed factor is great, and I already have ideas for future paintings.

Thanks, Ranjini, for sharing your technique!
