"PUMPKIN" In Progress by Marina Petro
PUMPKIN -painting in progress
16x20 Oil on stretched canvas
Thought I'd post what I have been currently working on. I took a photo of the pumpkin in an amazing pumpkin patch at a garage sale I stopped at last Fall. The colors in the actual painting are probably a little more saturated. Colors sometimes diminish when a photo's resolution is lowered for internet use. I don't remember what the actual color of the leaves were in the garden, but I like the way they came out lavender in the photo. Makes it very interesting, at least for me. Each painting holds it's own unique challenge and I always learn something new. The challenge with this is the texture of the leaves. I'm heading into my studio now to work on it again. Hopefully for the last time.
