Fruit painting: pears. Minnesota and South Dakota paintings.

My experiment of trying to use my round pointed portrait brushes as my main paint brushes for still lifes was really interesting. I disliked it! My pallet and tools for still lifes and landscapes has become completely different from my pallet and brushes for portraits (or the other way around).

So last week I set myself up for success with the backlit still life that I find so inspiring, and pulled out my square brushes. What do you think?

The Pears with a View painting is being held for an upcoming show. But see all of my available paintings here:
