Yvette’s Gourds

My lovely neighbour, Yvette, lent me her gourds to paint last week.  The patterns and colours of gourds are so vibrant and feel so Autumnal, they were a delight to paint.  I prepared the canvas with a yellow ground and decided to leave some of it showing. I also purposefully composed the still life so that part of the gourds were ‘off canvas’ so that it didn’t look too neat and tidy.
