I have tried to do these pears once before. It was after the Halloween series and I was tapping back into my reservoir of photo references. Along with these pears, I tried two other drawings that day that ended up being crumpled and tossed. Since then I have thought about these pears and my ability to draw them. Every time I went looking for a reference I'd see them and must have developed some minor complex about drawing them again. I knew for sure that I didn't want to attempt it for the second time only to throw it away. But today when I went looking and saw the pears again I decided that they needed to be drawn whether I screwed them up or not. So, here they are: red and delicious!
