Fall is here and it is time to go to the pumpkin patch. Have a great time, but don’t forget to take pictures. These are treasured times to keep. Pick out a good size pumpkin to take home and carve a funny or scary face.
Some of the pumpkins in this painting have acrylic paint under the watercolor for a rich glow. The hay was created in layers from light to dark. Portions were masked before I applied each layer. This took a while as each layer had to dry, but the result was worth the time.

The set-up for painting FRESH MILK. I found the milk pitcher in an antique store. The coffee pot has seen many camping trips. A family treasure, the orange bowl (though chipped) is still used to whip sweet cream. FRESH MILK
