I have been watching the Teaching Company’s lecture series “Dutch Masters” by William Kloss, and have been inspired to work more on depicting fabric. With Dutch paintings in mind, I set about to work on a composition with a grouping of items that was essentially stable and somewhat formal while also having some additional visual interest. The simple placement of the pears was played off by the dynamic qualities of the fabric folds.
