Three's Company 5"x7" oil

My friend Karen Seward and I painted together.  She is the queen of pears…she does them small, does them large and does them in watercolor, acrylic and oil.  This is her still life set up with an unusually bright red pear with a yellow stripe down the side.  That was tricky because painting it like it actually was, would have ended up with an artificial looking pear.  This was a pretty fast painting and I was a bit distracted at the time I did it, but sometimes those conditions help rather that interfere.  I am thinking I need to practice creating volume, like in portraits or round pears.
