# 48: Golden Pair

6" x 6" oil on canvas


I spoiled myself  by adding some cobalt blue my palette but these pears asking for a nice backdrop. The pears were green but have been slowly ripening and were the perfect color to be painted again. These painting felt mostly un-labored and I managed to keep everything within a 2 hour window of time. I am still working on limiting my brushstrokes in the beginning stages and i think that it helping me focus on the big areas.
