6"x6" acrylic on masonite
One of the toughest questions of the season... Would you like apple pie or pumpkin pie? It's always so hard to choose. I usually end up having both!
I learned a lot from this painting. The colors I used where the 3 primaries... Ultramarine Blue, Alizarin Crimson and Yellow Ochre. I also used Raw Umber, Cadmium Red Light, Cadmium Yellow Light, Cerulean Blue and Titanium White. What I did my best to do was not paint with any white until the very last touches. I achieved this by not using white with any of my colors in this painting except for a little bit added to the stem of the pumpkin, and of course the highlights.
I learned a lot about color from a fellow acrylic painter of whom I have a lot of respect for, Roger Bansemer. Here are some links to youtube video's by Roger that explain concepts on color. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-6148073469862105300
