To continue with The Painting Gourd Series, here is the Red Gourd. Supplies used are the DecoAmericana Paint line and the DecoArt Traditons line.
I sketched on some strawberries and some grapes so far and based them in with the DA line of acrylics. I then switched over to the Traditions line.
The grapes are blue, pink, green and purple. These are going to be painted on a bed of black leaves.
Here you see the fruit with a coat of white to make the colors bright.
Here is the first shading and highlight. I think this Gourd will have a lot of tiny flowers added to it, those are fun to do.
