Bigger Fat Squash
I liked the last squash so much I decided I’d try it again, bigger. The last one was just 6 by 7 inches.
I knew I needed lots more paint and I mixed it first.
I did a drawing in cad red on a 16 by 20 inch board.
And just started smearing on paint with a palette knife
…and using oil paint sticks, trying to preserve the values while adding texture and interest.
Then blending everything out with a palette knife,
and reworking the drawing…
… and the background a bit.
What do you think? It’s better than last year’s squash, I think. Not a good photo though. By the time I finished, it was getting dark. My photos are much better when I use sunlight.
