Small Gourd

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.

Hershey's Kisses...and possible bad news

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.

Cream Puffs

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.
