Day 20 - Pear

Today is Day 20 of the 30 in 30 Day Challenge!  Wow!  We are 2/3 of the way through.

For today's entry I painted a pear.  I've been trying to work on value as I paint and concentrate not only on the shadow, but on the reflection the pear cast on this hard surface.

Interesting Wikipedia facts:
  • Several species of pear are valued for their edible fruit, while others are cultivated as ornamental trees. 
  • In 2010, The People's Republic of China was the top producer of pears at 15,231,858 tons.  Second in line was the United States at 738,085 tons.
  • Pears are a good source of dietary fiber and a good source of vitamin C. Most of the vitamin C, as well as the dietary fiber, is contained within the skin of the fruit.
