SELECTION OF GOURDS





Jayne gave me some gourds to fill my long thin table dish that my sister in law gave me for the lounge coffee table. I purchased some Diamine saddlers brown soluble ink last week, filled my LAMY pen and sketched them in that, spreading a little colour with a waterbrush, keeping Clive company in the lounge as he is not too well at the moment.













Then during the ladies group yesterday afternoon, we decided to paint some of the gourds. With brush only I did a watercolour of two in my garden sketchbook, as there is not much peeping through the snow in the garden at present! Helen did all four on the tray in oil and Philippa in watercolour. A good afternoon was had by all, with Maggie painting some yellow roses she had brought with her.

All very well done, Joan!

Lovely shapes and good volume in these and I like both the one with color and the one without.

Lovely Joan. I especially like the water colour.

I hope Clive is better soon.

Thanks friends. Afraid we are still awaiting scan appointment at the hospital Sue. Keep chasing and now told not until mid March - and Clive is in agony whenever he stands or walks (or rather shuffles indoors with two crutches).
