Two Pears, and a Yellow Pepper

A Yellow Pepper, 5 inches by 7 inches, December 2012
Sold! Private collection, Henrico, Virginia

There's no shortage of color and excitement here in Chateau d'Oleski. I started off with a study of light and transclucence in the key of yellow, with a fresh yellow pepper. It is always a great challenge to figure out what colors will describe the light that glows from within a yellow pepper.

Two Bartlett Pears, 5 inches by 6 inches, December 2012

I followed up with another study of bartlett pears, just to have fun with the musical rhythms of curves and color in these shapely subjects.
