Gourds and More

My Painting teacher has been pretty busy this month and we have not met since the last part of October. So I have no new water color painting  to show this month.

On the other hand,  the decorative painters have kept me busy this.  For our October meeting I took a co-worker and we painted gourds. Neither one of us had ever painted on gourds before, and as you can see we did not see how to paint a gourd the same. Then when we had our November meeting a few gals brought their finished product and they did not see gourd painting like me or Roxanne.

The decorative painters sponsored a class using Dr Martin's Hydrus Fine Art Liguid Watercolors towards the end of October. I know the drawing has issues (especially the butterfly) but I do like how vibrant the colors are. This is the first time I have ever used this media. October was full of first for me.

Even back in the 80's I did better with my colors than most, but not better with my drafting ability. Anyway,  here is my painting.

  1. Wow! I love the flower and butterfly. I love the vibrance of those colors, as well. Good job! The gourds was a fun project! Everyone had a different vision.
