Butternut Squash

I painted this still life using early morning light by the east window in my studio. That meant I had to paint quickly and that was a good challenge.  It forced me to use minimal brushstrokes and not overwork it.  I'm trying a new white in this painting.  Brian Burt's tutorial on DPW's ArtByte demoed four whites.  I'm using Gamblin Titanium Zinc white and my colors have remained more saturated than with my previous Winton Titanium.


  1. I love the colors and the roughness of it, well done. When the brush strokes hit the spot, it is magic.

  2. Hi Robin, good job! i like the combination of blue and orange.. :) Cheers!
