  • 4 easy steps to painting a pear..
Painting a pear with acrylic paint is so easy, here are the steps.
Step 1: Draw the shape of a pear with pencil or chaulk.
Step 2: Apply the base color of yellow..
Step 3: Apply Shadow color
Step 4: Add highlight
Watch my video tutorial for more instructions..

Step 1: Draw the shape of a pear with pencil or chaulk, this will help to get the shape of the pear correctly, if you don't like the shape you can erase the lines, or wipe off the chaulk with a damp brush paper towel..
Step 2: Apply the base color of yellow with a small filbert or flat sable or bristle brush, apply 2 coats of base color paint if needed, wait for each coat to dry before adding the 2nd coat of paint..
Draw as many pears at needed for you project, and add the base color you want, could be yellow, orange, green, or red brown,..
Step 3: Apply Shadow color to the left or right side of the pear, all you need to do is add a little brown to your yellow base color, a little brown to your orange base color, or blue to deepen the green base color, the pear can be dry when you apply the shadow....
Step 4: And Finally Add white highlights to where you think the light is shinning on the pear, you can also add leaves, and stem.
Here are a few various base colors for different color fruit. I hope you enjoy doing the project, you can paint along with my video and have fun..

    Allison, I sent my reply in the wrong spot so I will repeat it here ... I don't know where Shelley originally came from but I do know she lives in southern Ontario and teaches painting.

      No problem, I thought I replied but just in case you didn't get it, I don't know Shelley, but who knows she could be a distant relative .
