Conference pear

‘Conference pear’  © Peter Gander 2013
Before I ate this Conference pear I was taken by its textured skin and so took to painting it first! My piece of broken wax candle served to impart the texture via washes of watercolour over subsequent wax resist marks. Extra linear marks and white highlight were added with blue, sepia and white Conté sticks. Watercolour on The Langton 300gsm (rough) paper.

  1. Pity it's on such a messy tablecloth. I'd get my wife or my maid to clean it for you before you draw any more young man.
