I'm trying a different medium, watercolor, out for a while. I think it's good to use a different approach occasionally to get a fresh perspective from both the tools that you use and the way you use them. Plus, it's been so nice out, I've wanted to be outside as much as I can watercolors can be quick and immediate. This painting is from a photo that I took at the apple orchard, the lone pear tree amongst the macintosh. I took the liberty of not filling in detail in the background, just a nice complimentary color to set off the brilliant yellowish green of the pears.
