Autumn Squash - Oil on Panel, 7 x 5 inches
Oil on Panel, 7 x 5 inches
I’ve been hanging on to this squash for a while, waiting for an opportunity to paint it.
What interested me about it (apart for it being so gorgeously lumpy) was the two local colours - an orange and a yellow/green - that both had to be modelled convincingly to show the form, and they needed to be consistent with each other.
It’s generally called “holding the local”, and means that the object must appear to be the same colour in both the light and the shadow areas. Munsell is a huge help with this, since hue generally changes very little from light to shadow. Having a reliable way to check what’s actually happening to the colours you see can be a life saver!
