Spoon Gourd 1 - A Work in Progress

I woke up to a very frosty and foggy morning with the temperature having dropped overnight to 28F (-2C) and if we are lucky the high today will be 52F (11C), just a taste of things to come.

This is another painting I worked on from the Still Life class at KAGS earlier this week (see posts on 09 and 10 October 2014).

This painting is of an ornamental spoon gourd which is often split in half, allowed to dry and used as a decorative spoon, hence its name.

I continued with the same theme as the other paintings by having the resting on a bed of Maple leaves and used raw sienna, new gamboge, aureolin and burnt sienna for the background.

I will post this painting again as it gets closer to completion.
