Three of a kind, pear still life painting

Three pears still life palette knife painting

As a change from the landscapes and florals I have been painting lately, I wanted to paint some still lifes and practise my palette knife skills at the same time. These red pears sitting in the fruit bowl, just cried out to be painted. I used thick paint and had to resist the temptation to smooth everything down. I'll be interested in hearing your comments about this style.
