de peren

I was working this morning, this afternoon I had to go for a routine blood test, so really didn't think I'd have time to paint.
But thanks to the superb care at Queen's Hospital Romford, I was in and out for my blood test within ten minutes!
Which meant painting time and a very happy me :)

So I nipped over to Judy's blog, De Draad Aquarellen HERE who recently showed us a step by step to painting loose pears.
Absorbing the lesson, I drew my own pears and had a go at the technique.
The result, whilst not as loose as Judy's, is one I am very pleased with.
My red, yellow and blue were what I had to hand, not the same colours, so that's different too ! 
Nonetheless, in gratitude for Judy taking the time to do a step by step to explain her loose technique, I called this painting :

de peren

  1. Nice, Pat! I have the hardest time loosening up and know when to stop with the details! I just commented on your last post and by the time I posted, you had put up a new one!

  4. Thanks, Judy!
    No, it wasn't difficult, just different - and today I was so happy I flew through the hospital system, I was painting with delight. It really just flowed, though I have to admit to liking the red bits best :) xx

  6. Really like the blending and colours Pat. Hope all is well with you considering the blood test - I personally so dislike these routine necessities, but one has to go through the process sometimes.

  7. Very lovely, Pat. I like the bright red with also some bright yellow. For me this is loose enough which made me like it more.

  10. well those are some pretty pears. Remarkable that you could get in and out of a hospital in 10 minutes for blood work. That would never happen here

  20. Thanks for all your kind comments, everyone.
    Things have been hectic here, we've got a moth problem! Furniture has been moved and carpets lifted and much sterling work done by Mr Dyson .. we will beat them!
