For the pumpkin painting i wanted to stay with the orange tones throughout the painting and not just in the pumpkins, i decided the best way to do this would be to block out colours before i painted in detail, as you can see i did with the ground and river in the images below. I had already painted the pumpkin house of one of the tree trunks at this stage.
As you can see this images i moved onto painting the smaller pumpkins and river/gorge area. I i added warm red tones and golden yellow ones this area and really like how it turned out.
I then painted the carrots, i decided to add carrots as the background looks a little bare, but wanted dot stick to the orange hues.
Here is the finish product…
I am very pleased with how this turned out because i have never really painted scenery before as i usually focus on portraits.
However i do wish to state i did not come up with this design on my own, Although i did draw and paint it.
I feel this image describes autumn pretty well, did enjoy painting it and particularly enjoyed painting the pumpkins and the sky.
