WELL……..AS PROMISED (Thoughts to provoke creativity No.6)…Here is my PURPLE PEAR!!! It is done in watercolour & Indian Ink pens on thick chalky watercolour paper. Once I had done one………I was bitten by the ‘Pear Bug’ and I have been painting & decorating pears for days. I have ‘loosely’ drawn on styles of ornament from various periods to come up with the decoration & have penned these in, some are stamped as well. (I created a ‘mask’ to stamp them after I had painted them) Some of these I will use for the QUEEN of SWAPS (more info in the side bar) ‘I found it in my Garden’ swap, I will keep some & trade others. If you would like to trade one, email me & let me know. I am working on apples now, I am struggling a bit more than I did with the pears getting the shading right, but I think with some more trial & error (hmmmm…..lots of errors!) it will come together……..(or else, I will ask my accomplished watercolourist art buddy Jenene [who paints watercolours that look like photos] to interveen when I see her next!! LOL!!)
On the Pear that is green with the flower on it (I call it Arts & Craft Pear) I used a new stamping ink pad from Brilliance called ‘STARLITE BLACK’ it has a gorgeous metallic pewter look and I know it will become one of my favs. in time. love it, love it, love it…….
