Challenge #2...

Pablo told me I'd never guess what he'd chosen to paint for our second challenge -- foods that start with a "P" -- and he was right. Pan Dulce -- an inspired choice. I'm afraid mine really needs to be introduced last name first to fit the challenge: Pears, Asian. This is the finished version of the painting I showed you the other day with the "disappearing purple" underpainting.

  7. Beautiful paintings Chris! Your disappearing purple technique worked out just great and your choice of colors for the background compliment the pears nicely.

  9. Well, I think I was having a bit of brain freeze (can I blame it on the weather here in Wisconsin?) when I left the last comment. Apologies to Lisa, whom I renamed Linda. :-}
