When I mentioned to a friend that my Wednesday morning class wanted to paint pumpkins, she came baring pumpkins and squash the next day. That Cinderella pumpkin on the right has a beautiful shine to it - almost as if it had been glazed. They are all beautiful - great colors, interesting textures, and wonderful quirky stems.
The class met this morning and they did a fantastic job of painting them. They really captured those colors and textures.
Sooner or later I am going to have to cook some of these, but for awhile I'll enjoy sketching and painting them.
