Pears in Reflection

This painting will be the lesson for our class this coming Monday evening.  I finished it this afternoon...it is 11" x 15" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed Arches watercolor paper.  When I saw the source photo by Dale Cato on Wet Canvas I was taken with the wonderful light and the reflections on the shiny table.  I think they will enjoy painting this one!
