OSWOA - Pears in Blue Bowl

This is a painting I started a while ago (see post on 30 April 2010) in a class with Margaret Roseman.

The pears and bowl were pretty much complete and only required a small amount of detail to be added.

The paper around the pears and bowl down to the tablecloth was wet with clear water and the background was painted in with a mixture of Antwerp blue, French ultramarine blue, alizarin crimson and a touch of burnt sienna creating a soft, warm grey.


Once the background was dry the tablecloth was painted using various mixtures of French ultramarine blue, Antwerp blue and burnt sienna.

If you would like more information about OSWOA please go to my post on 12 March 2010.

The OSWOA shown here is an original watercolour painting using Artist quality Winsor & Newton paint on 140lb. Arches 100% rag, acid free watercolour paper. It is priced at $50.00 and sold unframed.
