Shelly's pears

My friend, Shelly, asked me to do a piece for her that is very similar to the Pears on my website. The other Pears are done on Stonehenge paper, but I chose to work these on 8x10" Ampersand white pastelboard. I chose white to get the luminosity of the light areas on the pears. The background was a bit of a challenge but with solvent and dark pencils I covered the white background. Shelly plans to stand the piece in an easel in her kitchen as it is without framing.
