You can see how overworked the paper is and areas of muddy color. This might be saved using pastels or acrylics but first I'll go back in with watercolors to see what can be done.
As can be seen in the cropped close up below, the pears still need lots more work The pear on the viewer's right that stands alone (in the above photo) needs even more attention since it is a ghost outline of the pear.
I was trying to go slow on the pears while I went fast over the back and foreground areas. I am such a stick in the mud when it comes to the way I paint. I rarely try painting "outside the box" but I was trying with this one *smile*. I'm hoping to get in more painting time today which has been a bit sparse lately.
I'm happy to report that my mom is doing very well. Thanks all of you for the well wishes for her.
