# 177: King Pear

7" x 7" oil on canvas

The top pear seems to be lording over his subjects.
I tired to get more gestural and simple in my approach to the subject today and used a 1' brush for most of the paint application. I feel pretty happy with it...except for the bowl which got over-worked and fussy

  1. nicely handled.
    I agree a little bit about the bowl, but at the same time I'm all about contrasts --so having the interplay of gesture and fuss isn't a problem for me... I wouldn't lose it altogether.
    I like the edge vagueness on the non conformist pear to the right.
