This is actually painted on an 1/8th sheet of watercolor paper and cropped with a photo imaging program simply because I liked the crop better. The painting is definitely red but maybe not quite as saturated as it looks here. This was just a play piece for colors, thinking of warm shadows and cool lights. I kept forgetting to use warm colors in the shadows so tried lifting the cool colors and reapplying warm colors. I know the form of the pears could have some harder edges and be shaped better but still I like this and it looks better in real life.
