Re: Pear Study For A Larger One
More pears!!! Oh my, everyone is hooked on pears recently (Chris too).
To me, it looks like you have reflecting light off your set up. I say this because I see one highlight head-on on the first pear, but on the second (right) pear you have a highlight lower right. The shadow on this pear is on the same side as the bright highlight of the first pear. You would thus assume the second pear would not be shadowed where you currently have it, but be in the direct light. I know this is probably confusing, but I hope you see what I mean. That's why I'm guessing you may have used really bright light (rather, not soft enough).
You know I always admire your art, so everything else, to me, looks fantastic.
