6" x 6" oil on canvas
I don't have a lot to say about this painting...except that painting the glass felt good but painting the little squash did not. I really have difficulty with creating a sense of form when I am using warm hues such as reds and oranges. I know that it is about using the complement in the shadow areas but I am also going to try something else as well. I will paint the little squash again today and work on establishing a neutral in order to unify and neutralize the entire palette. Then I will be able to use pure color for a bit of "pop" in selected places. I learned of this trick by reading another blog.
