Two Apples and a Pear is a companion piece to Pear and Two Apples. They're both painted on 5x7 Gessobords. This painting is the result of noticing the early morning sunlight and how it was raking across my kitchen countertop. I took a few reference photos to work from because the early morning light changes rapidly. I was interested in capturing the glossiness of the apples, and the variety of colors that can be found in their skin. The green pear contrasts nicely with the deep red apples. Fall is the best time to paint apples because they're in season. I enjoy painting fruit because it makes for great subject matter–and a tasty snack! The original painting is for sale.
