Pumpkins





Pumpkins
watercolor on Fabriano paper
30 cm x 23 cm/ 12 " x 9"
available



This painting is based on a photo provided by art friend, Geri Berkenstock, painted with his permission.  I really love the warm colors of the season. It took me quite a bit of effort to build up the strong oranges, glazing my colors with many layers.

This is a fun time of year, especially for kids. I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Halloween!

  7. I like those bright colors. I find it always difficult to paint the colors of the pumpkin. You did a good job on your pumpkins.
