Personally, Justjean.....you don't need to have the blending knife work for you! You're doing just FABULOUS without it! I love how you use the tonal effect to blend! What a wonderful technique and style you possess. This painting is just delightful and so well done so.....just keep on being Justjean!!!

Jean - This is deceptively Good! I love how the front pear seems to be totally in focus, and the ones behind just slightly out. Unfortunately, I have bad memories of an "Artist" who only had two subjects after hundreds of images - Aspen tree trunks, and Pears!

Fantastic Watercolour Justjean, I had just posted directly after you, I too posted an image that includes fruit. I did a lot of searching to find reference to a pear, I had to work from my failing memory lol. May I be slightly off topic here! The Title of your image attracted me to take a peek, "Three Pairs in WC". I really do not wish to offend, however, here in the UK a (WC) is a water closet (a toilet-lavatory) I do understand you meant 'Watercolour'. My wicked sense of humour had to see three pairs in such a location. Thankfully and to my surprise I find Three Pears in Watercolour. Back to topic, your image is sublime and the lighting is perfection. Well done..

thank you for the lovely comments Valerie, Eileen, Skylar, DMerchen, Jasminek and Roister :)

Roister, that ok :D , over here in Canada we call the wc a washroom so just imagine my sisters and my suprise when we asked where it was and they said they were sorry they didn't have a laundromat in the restaurant ;)

Very well done.

Excellent painting.

It's a superb still life indeed!
I agree with You on the fact that blender knife works only at higher paint thickness at sharp mode and there's actually no mode corresponding well enough to the previous soft mode ... but I possibly should still only find some equivalent mode/ settings ...

Excellent. The shiny red one looks like a wax fruit amidst regular fruit owing the color difference and sheen. Cool.

thank you for peeking in and commenting barnburner, Paul, Caesar, mannafig and D Akey.

I think I have now corrected my bad manners of not thanking everyone :D

Very nicely done! I agree with some of the comments above--here, there´s no need for the palette knife. Just fine as it is!

I love this Jean! Gorgeous, delicious!:)

Stunning work justjean!

Blending might well have ruined this; the strokes are marvelous; the shading is perfection. Get it printed. :)

Rose that knife just doesn't like me :D

thanks Scott , Alexandra and Evart for your kind comments :)

Robert the only things I print out (for now) are my portraits of my g/children (4 done, to to go) and then they will go up on the wall :D, and some paintings of Old English Sheepdogs that I do for others.
