For reasons I can't remember there was a morning on the cruise ship when I was supposed to be painting and I couldn't bring my acrylic setup. So, the challenge was - what to do? I decided to sit down in my usual spot and paint and draw pears. Anyone can draw a pear. You can't go wrong. Pears, like people come with all sorts of lumps and bumps and pearsonalities. And so it went. I had a good time doing it and I will share some of these images with you over the next week.
