So I've gone from Lemons to Pears - and I'm really struggling with what kind of background color to add...unlike the lemons, I think these could benefit from some color behind them.  Any thoughts on that? Or suggestions on improving my pears? I'm holding off on any real shading until I figure out the background piece.  Many thanks in advance - your advice is always spot on!
Cheers,
Sharon

Sharon--I like no background again.  The only thing I notice is a need to ground them a bit more with slightly darker shadows nearest the pear, but see what others think.

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Sharon, once again, a fantastic painting.  The pears are so realistic looking and as Lynnp said, darkening up the shadows just a tad, will really make all the difference.  Patricia

 Hi Sharon I agree with the others keep your background neutral and shade in the shadow abit heavier the pears are just ripe you are doing a wonderful job   Keep it up.   Ray
Kindest regards
Ray
