Pumpkin Time

Fall Harvest
Oil on wood cradled panel
6" x 6" x 1.5"

Okay, I'm getting my orange fix satisfied this month by painting pumpkins.  This little size was just to whet my appetite for a larger format.  I look outside and the yard is ablaze with golden leaves and the pumpkins on my front porch are being nibbled on by squirrels.  It's a good thing I've taken all my reference photos already!  

I thought the corn would be the most difficult but the corn husks were the real challenge.  There is a lot of color in these.  Everything from cadmium oranges to purples and corals and the color reflected from the kernels. But that's okay...I want to do it all over again!
