Time to paint some pumpkin art.
So, today I'm going to be painting on
After a brown wash base and first coat of white,
I sketched a pumpkin shape onto my board.
I used some heavier tube acrylics in
white, ecru, warm grey, and grey.
I used a folded piece of card stock to drag my paint
across the surface, all around the pumpkin.
I dipped the card stock into a bit of each color
making a mixed background.
Then I used a liner brush to just sketch in the curved
lines and perimeter lines of the pumpkin.
Then I used my palette knife (you can still use card stock)
to drag mostly white paint onto the pumpkin
with just an edge of grey brown on the curved lines.
Lay your knife flat for more coverage.
Keep it on it's side for a fine line.
Use raw umber and ecru for the stem.
Add more shading to the bottom and right of the pumpkin.
Hope you try it!
The next one I'm going to share in on a canvas panel.
