This video is ideal for the beginning and advanced student who would like to learn a classical observational approach to painting pears. Learn how to paint a classic California Bartlett pear still life through Professor Hall Groat II’s informative video lesson. See firsthand how Hall uses a medium sized bristle brush to sketch in the basic shape and placement of the pear using transparent umber, and then immediately apply directly into the sketch bold, geometric brushstrokes to indicate the various planes and to suggest form and volume.
Learn how to mix the proper values and colors to indicate both the light and dark patterns. Watch Hall use a soft, synthetic sable brush to carefully blend the planes together.
