An Unlikely Pear
In case you can't tell -- that's a poorly folded origami crane. See, my experimentation goes beyond painting and into classical Japanese arts. I'm a Renaissance woman, I am.
Okay, so here's the deal with this one:
1. I may have gone a bit far on this background. I love those darks, though...
2. I tried WN gold ochre for the pear. I liked it real well at first, but then it seemed to dull down more than I expected as it dried, especially when burnt sienna was washed over it. It seems to be quite a bit more opaque than it appeared at my first test.
3. Really. That poor pear has about had it, and I've got to get better at folding those cranes.
