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!
