“Blackened” gourd art

I’ve gotten hooked on what I call my “blackened” design.

 

It is a style that I have stumbled across and have adapted to my liking.

 

 

 

 

 

It takes more time to add the darker contrasting colours around the main design, but I believe well worth the effort!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have been working on smaller gourds that I bought from a local gardener.

It took me a long time to figure out what I could fit on them as the “canvas” area is so much smaller than any I have worked on before!

 

 

 

 

 

I choose to use most any gourd, they don’t have to be “perfect”, sometimes a flat or
dark spot may be one one side, but that’s the beauty of working with natural plants!

 

So far I’ve completed 5 pieces using the blackened style…with no doubt, many more to come!
