Demonstration at Norton's Art Gallery
November 4--3pm
"Fall Pears"
Watercolor   12x16
Inspiration and Design:
For a live demo at Norton's Art Gallery, I constructed a fall still life, consisting of mums in a copper pot, and pears.  For the demo, I visited the grocery store to find interesting still-life items.  The most appealing subjects were the golden-colored fall pears.  They were fresh and abundant, and their color was very eye-catching.  I am continually fascinated with how the sun's rays add rosy pink color to the fruit skin exposed to the light.  No other fruit or object fit as well with the pears as the burnt orange-colored mums.
