Diva 7 1-4×9 1-4 (by Mark Leichliter)

Ren brought home some pears, and this one had such an eccentric shape, I couldn’t wait to paint it. Set up a little stage and spotlit it to get a nice raking shadow. Painted on black mat board, which was a learning experience for me, too: porous grounds slurp the oil right out, making alla prima techniques kinda difficult.

(Sorry for the post avalanche – I’m trying to catch up so I can post about what I am currently working on.)
