I just love these Red Anjou pears. The colours and form are so inspiring to paint. I got a bit of glare in the photo but I haven't figured out how to avoid that with the darks in oil paintings yet. If anyone has any tips please let me know.



  1. Wow! Love this painting Claire. The red background is wonderful...and great reflections on the pears. Tempting is a perfect name.!

  2. Beautiful! I like the contrast of the cut pear in the middle. It brings my eye there to rest. The reds are wonderfully vivid and warm. And the background is so nice with the light coming in on the side. Very pretty!

  3. Thank you Hilda and Kathrine. I feel pretty happy with this little painting so I'm thrilled you both like it.
