This pear was almost deemed 'spoiled' and tossed in the garbage. I find it a challenge to add the various layers of color without picking up some of the previous layers. Even when completely dry, the watercolor can re-activate and lift with brushing and blending. But I didn't give up and managed to recover the shape and tone with additional careful layering. Now it is one of my favorites! It puts the first one to shame but you can see how much improvement can be gained with persistence and practice.
