An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell
Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge
Day Seventeen

Leslie Saeta's Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge
Day Seventeen
Oil on Panel
6 x 6

Currently for sale at 
Brath and Hughes Fine Arts Gallery, L.L.C.

This Bartlett pear had such a beautiful blush.  I placed
it on a batik print cloth napkin, and a soft
fold automatically encircled the pear...
perhaps she is just a bit shy.

All of my paintings for this Challenge will be done in a 6 x 6 format,
and my main goal while painting from life
something which will only benefit my work.

If you would like to join this Challenge, or just follow the
work of the participating artists, just visit her blog:

I can see her blush and hear a giggle of sorts..ha! The colors in this one are what I really am attracted to. That peachy background so warm and soft. The orange and blue are definitely a winner - too bad that the Broncos aren't. But I know you Ravens fans were happy. (smile)

Gorgeous pear - my favourite so far! I think it's probably the arrangement that particularly catches my eye.

Love the shy pear blushing! It is the warm shadows beside the highlight which makes it beautiful.
Never used batik in still life even though that technique originated in India. Your batik textures seems like an oceanic wave churning out gold :)
