Three Pears – 6" x 8" (15.25 x 20 cm) – Oil Canvas Panel

Lately I have been experimenting with different painting surfaces, canvas panels with a medium texture or smooth texture and gessoed masonite panels. The different surfaces enable different paint handling effects. This painting is on a medium textured canvas panel, which makes for softer edges, almost everything is soft because of the amount of paint I used whereas with a masonite panel sharp edges are easier to create and the effort goes into softening the edges.
