5minutewatercolour Squash

Using transparent yellow (PY150) cadmium yellow (PY35) cobalt blue (PB28) and vandyke brown. Starting with a large makeup brush from the local pound shop, then a favourite Chinese brush from Louise at Oriental Arts and the detail on the stalk done with a sword  brush. The spotty texture is created with drops of water applied as the surface goes from shiny wet to damp sheen. I bought this squash from Slindon Pumpkins in West Sussex en route to a teaching weekend at the beautiful West Dean College. It’s become a bit of an annual pilgrimage!
