100 Starts – Number 98

Number 98 of my 100 Starts project
Number 98 of my 100 Starts project

Haven’t painted this little yellow dish in a long time, and wanted to use the pear from a couple of days ago. It reminds me of someone taking a bath in a tub that’s too small…

I got more detailed than intended for this project, but all of the colors I saw in the pear had me a little mesmerized. As an experiment I converted the study to greyscale and flipped back and forth between the color and greyscale versions. Somehow this made me notice the analogous color scheme of the composition — it wasn’t something I set out to do intentionally but it was a serendipitous surprise!

Now that I’m in the home stretch I wanted to start posting these daily. The previous studies can be found here.
