This baby watermelon, about 8" across, was a complete surprise when we opened it. Yes, we were expecting red! I bought it from the Amish roadside stand down the road. Check out the cool design in the melon. Way Cool. It was the sweetest watermelon I have ever tasted but it was gone too fast!
I just realized that some of my latest paintings are very close to the same color. I really do have lots of other paints. I wanted to paint something else that was cold so this was it. I did use a bit of gouache on this one. I also used my spray bottles on the background.
The produce is coming in and I have cooked zucinni in everything I can think of. Any suggestions. Now we have an abundance of cucumbers! I live in a non-air conditioned house so Cool...NOT! The background of this painting was created by masking off the cucumber with masking tape, Laying down a plastic lace tablecloth, and spraying with a spraybottle I filled with water and Mag Blue watercolor DS Paint.
