It's not really a sketch, it's a huge drawing that was a class assignment when I took drawing from Ray Turner. But I could not resist the sound of squash sketch; listen to how it sounds like Sasquatch. Ray Turner was a terrific teacher. In addition to some good basics, I really got from him the idea of working large - of filling the space you have to fill with art, and not doing little uptight drawings that you would just want to crop later.
It's a pattypan squash. I had to look that up just now, because I really can't keep my squashes straight. This I think is one of the best looking squashes, but not nearly the tastiest. Pattypan. Pretty silly name.
