Watercolor Food – Painting of a Pear – Artist Illustrator Irina Sztukowski 

This Painting Print Is Available
Don’t you think that each pear is different and each of them has its own personality? When you look at the pear you would never say Mister, right? People refer to these fruits as Ladies all the time. Even woman shape is called a Pear Shape one. In fact, in Russian language pears carry a feminine name.

When I looked at this Miss Green Beauty I’ve noticed the obvious nudity. She was shy but proud of her curves. It was impossible not to paint her.
I’ve challenged myself using a watercolor board again. Lots of water, lots of dabbing, but the needed effect was reached; and, I am happy about it. The advantage of the board is that you can place it on a wall or on easel without framing. The board is 2-3 mm thick, which gives the painting durability and decorative feeling. Also, the rough surface of the board brings some interesting character to the painting texture.

And here is the small tour into the Pear History:
Pears are one of the world’s oldest cultivated and beloved fruits. In 5,000 B.C., Feng Li, a Chinese diplomat, abandoned his responsibilities when he became consumed by grafting peaches, almonds, persimmons, pears and apples as a commercial venture. In The Odyssey, the Greek poet laureate Homer lauds pears as a “gift of the gods.” Pomona, goddess of fruit, was a cherished member of the Roman Pantheon and Roman farmers documented extensive pear growing and grafting techniques. Thanks to their versatility and long storage life, pears were a valuable and much-desired commodity among the trading routes of the ancient world. Evident in the works of Renaissance Masters, pears have long been an elegant still-life muse for artists. In the 17th century a great flourishing of modern pear variety cultivation began taking place in Europe. And in popular culture, the pear tree was immortalized alongside a partridge in the 18th-century Christmas carol, The Twelve Days of Christmas.
Early colonists brought the first pear trees to America’s eastern settlements where they thrived until crop blights proved too severe to sustain widespread cultivation. Fortunately, the pear trees brought west to Oregon and Washington by pioneers in the 1800’s thrived in the unique agricultural conditions found in the Pacific Northwest. Today’s Northwest pear varieties are the same or similar to those first cultivated in France and Belgium where they were prized for their delicate flavor, buttery texture, and long storage life.
