I'm back with another pumpkin painting today!
Last week, I shared a rustic white pumpkin
that I painted on rough planked boards.
This one is very basic, because you start with
a 16" x 20" canvas panel
that you can purchase at a craft store or Walmart.
Just leave it white
and sketch a pumpkin shape onto you canvas.
Use aqua and white paint.
Fold a small piece of card stock paper
and drag and pull paint across canvas
all around the perimeter of the pumpkin,
leaving the center white.
Now with your paper dipped in one side white
and one side camel,
pull and shade edges and curves.
When you want to fine line an edge,
hold your card stock on it's side and pull.
For a very fine line,
don't fold the card stock,
just use an open single edge.
Paint stem with raw umber and camel or tan.
When you shade any areas,
you can use a baby wipe
and pull and blend paint
on right and lower edges.
Add grommets and ribbon at top.
Now you have a fun fall welcome.
Enjoy your fall projects!
