Aprox. 6×10 inch watercolor on Arches 140 lb. rough, cold press paper. Washes with dry brush work. This is the first time I've used both Arches and a rough watercolor paper. I enjoy using the watercolor it's self and doing dry brush allows me the freedom to build the colors up. I'm going to use this painting as a guide to do other paintings of pears only using different colors, washes , different lighting and at least one painting using my gouache paint.
