This melon is slow going. Once it's all in place I plan to glaze in the form. I'm wondering what might have best for underpainting, as well as if I should have varied the webbing color to match form. Before or after with the form building, that is the question. Another thing is I can't tell if Melendez used impasto here. I will be looking closely at this painting when I visit the MFA.
Well, I just couldn't leave it partly complete. I'd have to wait another day before glazing.
