Drapery Study with Pear - NA
Drapery Study with Pear Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14" Not available. I haven't really tackled drapery per se. I've fudged by doing drapery with patterns and stripes, but I wanted to see if I could paint plain drapery. I found some deep blue fleece at Walmart and took home a quarter yard, shone a bright light on it, and plopped a pear at the top. What surprised me was the purple tones in the blue under the light. Pretty cool. I don't expect anyone to actually want this piece to hang, but figured I'd show it anyway. Do you think the background would be better in a dark umber color?
