Rustic White Pumpkin Art

Fall Decorating

is here!

Time to paint some pumpkin art.



Pin It!



So, today I'm going to be painting on 

rough board.

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.





Pin It!



Hope you try it!

The next one I'm going to share in on a canvas panel.

Time to paint pumpkin art,

Deb

This is so beautiful. I'm afraid I wouldn't have the courage to try one myself.
But I sure enjoyed looking at yours.

Oh wow, that looks great.........
I am in love with white pumpkins, course, I love them all, but the last years the white
ones have garnered a lil more of my heart I must say.
You make that looks so easy, but doubt mine would look like that.........
course, I just might have to give it a go and see for myself.
thanks for the inspiration,

Blessings, Nellie

I love the colors of this pumpkin and the rustic appeal of the rough wood... I'm going to give this project a try. It would be perfect for my farmhouse d├ęcor style for the fall.
Happy Tuesday,
Kay
