I'm not happy with the pears. This is something new to me. Would welcome any ideas.

These are pears, no doubt in my mind, the skin texture is just right. As a matter of personal taste, Im not sure about the blue background as it looks like a matt. But this is a WIP. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with this.

Present - I painted the same image from the WC ref Library. Your reflection is great. Your pears are wonderful. I'm not qualified to critique but there are lots of folks here that can help. :clap:

It works for me-I think the shadow on the table are very convincing. :clap:

Mikey - thanks for encouragement. Blue in background in the photo in reference library is wall with door frame but I used artistic licence to take that out because I didn't want another line there. But I did like the blue wall - mine is still a little hard in tone and I will work on softening it.
Catherina and Marysa - thank you both for your thumbs up.

This was a new exercise for me and it was nice to find it worked.

I like it and think if the blue were softened, it would be a good thing :).
