These Three Pears

Some little pears from my garden that I originally did in watercolour,  I painted them several times on different paper but couldn't get them right. (It's easy to blame your tools when it goes wrong!)
But in the end I went over the top with coloured pencil and liked it more.

These have such a lovely bloom - how talented you are!

These are perfect - or should I write 'imperfect' - as they look so real. Nice work, Cathy, as always. x

Well of course it's the tools! Lol. They sure came out pretty in colored pencil and a great recording of your very own pears off your tree!

From Melissa Elliott
I agree with everyone else's comments, of course (gorgeous color and form), but what I also love is the whimsical layout.

(Thank you Melissa!)

Somehow, I don't think my first comment here "took" so here goes again:
This is a lovely trio!! Colored pencil, the perfect medium for your beauties, looks great in the shadows too!! Brilliant work!
