The Pumpkin


This one was a fun one! The creative process and layers that went into this painting is a stretch for me, and turned into something a little different than what I usually do. I started with a black base coat, then added some layers of tissue paper and glue. The texture made an interesting background to paint on.. Then the pumpkin got about 10 layers of paint; red, orange, brown, yellow, and green. Anyway, definitely a fun process!

Cute pic! I have been painting on scrap pieces of wood my father-in-law saved for me. I have been doing quotes and verses for gifts...but maybe objects would be fun too...hmmm.
