6x6", oil on canvas board

As I said in my prior post, bumpy gourds are hard to paint. I took the approach of painting the background color, then adding the color of the actual bumps. But I liked the way that the neck on this one curved around, and I was able to find an angle where the shadow looked cool.

We're currently in Honolulu, where I've so far painted a bunch of bananas and a couple of papayas.
