Gourds Still Life

Title: Gourds
Medium: Oil on 11 x 14 wood panel

Here they are finalized a few of my favorite things to paint, brass, gourds and ceramic. Worked a bit on the gourds and foreground this morning, and created a lot more contrast. I like the nice painterly effect I managed to pull of with this one. Which is quite a departure from the first time I picked up a brush again a few years ago, where I was more focused on creating a very tightly rendered painting, thankfully I got away from that and in turn things are looking a lot more realistic, funny that.

Not sure if this is for sale at the moment as I have a juried show to enter and still in the process of making my selections.

Enjoy

Dave
