Pears on Plate
Original pastel painting on hand-textured acid-free mountboard. A hand-prepared board offers the artist an opportunity for more painterly images and experimental approaches. These pears were arranged on a fluted glass plate, providing a relatively simple still life, but the rougher surface allowed light (in the form of pastel) to be caught on the upper corner and the crinkled edges of the plate. The pears are a subtle mix of ochres, mid-green and warmer browns. Around the plate, dashes of bright blue flicker against the complementary yellow-orange-brown colour scheme.
