Tight Squeeze

Here is a complete study of three pears in a bowl.  This was another difficult painting. The pears had plane changes and I had to keep comparing them to each other to get the color, temperature and value correct.  There was a slight change in the light of the bowl. Then the color bouncing into the bowl shadow has to remain in shadow but still show that reflective color.
I had to keep from overworking the pears by remembering to make slight changes NOT extreme changes when comparing.
