Pumpkins for Sallie

Project Description

What was your source for this piece? Other Tell us a little more about your inspiration. I set up a still life with artificial pumpkins, flowers and berries on a table with a darker background cloth, took some photos, (lots of them) chose the one I liked and used it as reference. Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. I wanted to do a painting for my daughter, Sallie. She requested pumpkins because she loves them, she's addicted to Autumn and her home is warm and charming and full of soft fall colors. The painting is quite large, on 140# cold press Arches paper, using transparent watercolors. Is the piece for sale? No

OMG! I'm speechless with this piece. The way how you blend the colors on the pumpkins is a total perfection. The background work is amazing as well
