"Little Pears" is painted in warm browns and golds with several shades of green and red, the pears painted on the textured squares and varnished.

This is a little different for me! ... Still Life! and was initially inspired by watching Le Tour De France :) seeing all those lovely chateau's and castles and villages throughout Europe!! this artwork was inspired by the beautiful colours and textures of that countryside and the Fresco Style of painting.

Just a little info on what is Fresco?

Fresco painting is a very old technique. It reached the height of splendor with the Renaissance masters and was used to decorate buildings and church vaults. A fresco is painted on fresh (fresco) plaster made of slaked lime and sieved siliceous river sand plus pigments diluted with plain water. The painting must be done quickly and surely, before the base has time to dry. (Murals are instead painted over dry plaster). The chemical reaction between the calcium hydrate and carbonic acid in the atmosphere fixes the painting and makes it insoluble. This technique was used to decorate buildings and church vaults.
Frescoe artworks normally do not have bright colors in them, and usually are painted in the earthy Itialian colours.
