Gourds - A Work in Progress

This is another painting I started in Sharon Taylor's class (see my posting on 12 October 10 for Corn Stalks 1-3).

With everyone else in the class working on either corn stalks or different types of trees I had to do something different.

Since the gourds were sitting on the window ledge anyway, I thought they may make an interesting painting.

There is still a lot more to do on this painting, but at least the base colours have been painted in and I still have to add a lot more detail to the gourds.

I have to mark in where the shelf will be that the gourds are resting on and then decide what I want to do with the background. I really don't want to have a window behind them, although I could make the background into a lacy curtain, or perhaps patterned wallpaper.

Once I have made my decision I will post the results.
