Still Life With Pear: Session 6

I’m at a loss for words today I have been working on the still life with pear for six sessions now and I’m not sure what to say about it.

I didn’t work very long on it today, only an hour and a half. I’m focused on the satin cloth now and working slowly. The values in the cloth are so subtle and the edges are difficult to discern¬†so I’m paying close attention.

I’m almost layering the painting at this point. I started working on the cloth by painting the broader values and shapes first with a larger brush then after getting the general shape done I switch to a smaller brush and work more methodically through the fabric.

I found my mind wandering too much after about an hour working tonight and I didn’t want to cause any mistakes in the painting from lack of focus so I only worked for an hour and a half. I figure that tomorrow I will hit the open studio as a break from the painting, then com back to it on Thursday with a focused mind.
