Here's my painting of this weeks subject at Karin Jurick's Different Strokes blog.
Pumpkins I think are easier to paint if they are orange, 'cause with white ones you have all this color bouncing around from other objects and background. I did underpaint a few areas with fluid acrylics since I didn't want those glazes to move, with watercolor on top.
Not quite realistic values, but there are some interesting bleeds and subtle color blends that you probably can't see on the monitor.
Three Little Pumpkins, 5x7 image size.
Have a nice weekend, everyone.
