Every fall, my mom gets me a small net of gourds of different shapes. I really enjoy having them around the house and to paint them. Here’s another gourd painting!

I wanted to make my watercolor paintings more vivid, so this one turned out with fairly high contrast. Do you like when watercolor paintings are more subtle or vivid?

This still life of a star gourd is 8.5 by 5.5 inch in size and painted on 138lb watercolor paper.
