"Mini Pumpkin"

"Mini Pumpkin"
6 x 6 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
Today I did a demo at the local art store Dick Blick, it was fun painting in front of people and answering so many questions.  It was also nice they had food and live music, always nice to paint in a different in environment and have a good time.  I decided to paint this mini pumpkin which was perfect with the time allotted for the demo, painting its smooth and rough textures was a nice challenge.  I figured since October is right around the corner and the change of season is already here why not paint a fitting subject.  The lighting at the store was not the most ideal lighting situation but it wasn't worst either, overall good environment and most importantly I had fun creating it.
