A Hundred Days Of Making Day 84: A Botanical Plate?

This painting of squashes and gourds was put together very quickly after a buying raid on the local farm shop last October. Individually they’re reasonably satisfactory, but arranged against a slightly suspect blue background as if they were going to be the subject of an illustrated plate for a book entitled Growing Pumpkins and Squashes For The Amateur Gardener.

It would have worked better not only with the composition adjusted but with fewer colours on the palette, but like yesterday’s subject it’s acceptably good within its terms of reference.
