100 Starts - Number 96

Number 96 of my 100 Starts project
Number 96 of my 100 Starts project

Crazy-jumbo pear stem aside, I love this study. The colors and shapes are so pleasing to me, with the cool grays on the white napkin and the warmth of the rest of the colors. The shadow cast onto the napkin and green surface by the pear is intriguing to me and I like the way the white napkin affects the different shadow colors.

I like how the composition is mostly quiet and calm, with just a hint of a dynamic quality from the angles of the white napkin. Once I complete this 100 Starts project, I want to go back and pick out my favorite compositions, colors, and subjects and see if I can determine why I like them in order to incorporate more of that moving forward.

Comparison of a pear done previously with this one:

Now that I'm in the home stretch I wanted to start posting these daily. The previous studies can be found here.
