|This is the photo I was taking when those seed pods caught my attention.|
|Simple sketch for watercolor.|
|Light glazes to start.|
For gourds, I use aureolin, new gamboge and quin. siena
For fence, it's indanthrone blue, quin. violet and quin. burnt orange.
|I did a bit more shadowing before getting into the local color.|
|Intensifying the gourd colors|
|Starting the pattern on the large gourd.|
|I've painted the stems with a light brown, and the dark is the phthalo green mix.|
I have pretty much completed the patterning, and my eyes are going cross-eyed, so I think I'll call it a night!!
As always, all comments are most welcome!
