Fruit, Pile of pears, by Elaine (jaguarish)

I've been waiting a L-O-O-o-ong time for these pears to ripen!

Today I thought I might try out some pastels, which a friend gifted me with a few years ago.  I am not very accustomed to them... but I persisted!  I know you can achieve fabulous things with pastels. This was a good chance to practice.


  1. Excellent job with the pastels Elaine. This is a lovely drawing, hope to see more with pastels :-)

  2. Your practicing with pastels turned out very well, Elaine! I love pastels I hope the pears were ripen too!

  3. You did a great job with the pastels...nicely shaded!

  4. Thanks Ann, Sirkka and Joan -- I kept thinking of what colours I would use if I were using watercolours and that kept me going (just love my watercolours...) It was interesting trying to figure out how to better show the edges of the pears (or whether I should even try).

  5. I like the shapes and colors of these, the angles!!!
