The Golden Pear

The Golden Pear - oil on canvas - 24"x22" - sold
(composition in red and green)

My initial concept for the piece was to paint in reds and greens creating as much atmosphere as possible.
I surrounded the main focal points in strong colour notes and light which in turn gradually moves to shadow as the painting reads from left to right. I really enjoyed the challenge of making the background including some branch and leave shapes appear in the right place by over working in glazes to control the colour temperature.

Any available works can be reserved in advance of my upcoming one man show by contacting me through my blog, on facebook or by email at
