Over the past couple of years, I have moved away from just painting flowers in watercolour. This is partly because there are several months in the year when I have no subject matter, but also because I wanted to learn how to use other media.

I find pears pleasing to draw - apples are a bit too boringly round for me - but anything with lumps, bumps and character attracts me. I'm very happy with curves and curls - I can't do straight lines for toffee.

I tackled the apple and pear in glass more as drawing exercises than anything else, but was quite pleased with the results.
