Butternut Squash, Sweet Potato, and Garlic
oil on canvas panel
I'm starting to discover that inspiration for still lifes can be found anywhere. These are the main ingredients for a supper I had planned this week - butternut squash soup (it is fall and soup weather after all). While my 2-hour time limit that I usually spend on a painting wasn't enough to truly finish each item to the degree I would have liked, I still managed to build the shape relatively well while maintaining the background's depth.
More on building form and keeping the depth of the background. This time, once again, I completed the quick 3-value sketch before moving on to color and paint.
