|"Small Gourd", oil on gessoboard|
It's that time of year again. Gourds and pumpkins as far as the eye can see. I was never inspired to draw one of these things before, but I saw a basket of small gourds at the market and that thought went through my head, "Hmm...never drawn gourds before". It's weird how my opinion changes on something when I set it up to paint.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think my camera just died on me. Thankfully I was able to upload my pictures to my computer before it happened. If my camera really bit the dust, then I definitely got my money's worth. I had it for at least ten years. I was looking for a new one anyway. This just speeds up the process.
Feel free to comment, and take a look at my Daily Paintworks page for some available artwork.

It's been a minute since I posted on here. I almost forgot what to do. ;-)
One of the local art stores had a sale on gessoboard panels, and since I've never painted on this surface I thought I'd give it a shot. I have to say that I'm really glad I made the choice to paint on gessoboard. The size is smaller than what I'm used to (6"x6") so I usually paint one subject. Painting on gessoboard makes it a little easier for me to paint wet into wet without mixing the top layer with the underlying layer too much. It gives the painting a more textured look. At least that's the way it seems to me. I saw some cream puffs in the grocery store and thought I'd try my hand at it. I love the challenge of rendering textures faithfully. This is my first try and I liked it, so I'll probably paint a few more.
