Pastel on Tiziano pearl, 165x150 mm (6.5x6 in.)

Monday I wanted to make something using mostly yellow, and I wanted to create the effect of the squash emerging from the background defined by shadows and light. I laid in the base using Rembrandts, and then discovered that all the yellows in my new set of Senneliers were hard, hard, hard, and unusable! (They are being replaced by my supplier.) So this is more orange than intended, and not as soft. I like it anyway.
