I seem to be thinking a lot about pears lately… so after I ate my one for dinner last night, I went to a local Farmer’s Market and bought 3 more!
I needed to warm-up so I did 3 quick scribbly drawings with a ball-point pen to get the feel of their shape:
Next, I decided to draw a contour of them like I was writing a haiku – with only 5, 7 and 5 lines for each pear shape. I scribbled water-soluble (Neocolor 2) wax pastels in vibrant fall colors:
And softened them with water:
And finished with this written haiku:
Yellow blushing red A juicy ripe pear-fect treat Sweet autumn harvest.
Have a happy day! 🙂
