Winter Squash, day 3 painting in Lislie Saeta's 30 paintings in 30 days challenge, measuring 6 x 6 x 1.5 on a wrapped canvas. It is for sale and you can find it on my website www.creativeworksoflindaclark.com under Creative Works of Linda Clark and then original paintings. I thought maybe these cute little squash would give some autumn color without the typical orange pumpkin. Using this time to experiment with different techniques and colors, I painted the canvas a thin wash of teal acrylic knowing it was the contrasting color for coral. I mixed my colors before to achieve different values of the coral color.
I' m beginning to like having a contrasting color behind to leave some of it showing on the finished painting. Thanks for following along my painting journey! Until tomorrow!!
