Painting a day 8/23/08

I got this lovely summer squash at an out door stand at near by farm.

I thought before I ate them. I would do a few paintings. The nice curve of the steam and the lovely yellow color were so inviting.I couldn't resist giving it a try.

I sat up a shadow box made from some old painting boards that I had painted white.

I better look at the set up. It's nothing special but it does the trick.

I started with a quick sketch done in a sepia colored oil.

I began filling in some of the shaded areas.

I worked on the local color and added detail to some of the areas.

Here I blend some of the color.

The image begins to take form.

a closer look at detail

This is my studio or a part of it where I work in oils.

The finished master piece.
