The shapes and colors of the gourds I bought have been really interesting to paint. Lots more interesting than many other kinds of fruit you would typically see in a still life. Another thing that constantly fascinates me is the ever changing quality of light on objects. Today's painting was painted in north light on a bright day. You can see the sky reflected on the gourds as the light shone in through sliding glass doors, bringing interesting patches of color to them. Enjoy!
