I woke up at 2 a.m. and decided to use the time to start a painting of pears. The pears were picked from a tree in the back pasture, then photographed. I'm using a couple of new green paints, Rare Green Earth and Bohemian Green Earth by Daniel Smith. I have also mixed some of the greens using yellow ochre, azo yellow, and cerulean blue. Ultramarine Violet was used in areas of the cast shadows.
