Fall Leaves and Pumpkin 11" x 14" Mixed Media Painting

In this painting I tried a new technique whereby I started with a textured substrate, painted many colors on at random and then "found" the pumpkin and leaves by painting the negative space. Fun and good for the brain because I have to think in terms of carving out the subject rather than painting it on the surface.


  1. J'aime beaucoup l'harmonie des couleurs apportée à votre potiron... Une très jolie peinture.
    Gros bisous à vous et je profite de ce message pour vous souhaiter un excellent séjour avec Susan. Que vous ayez vous toutes des journées très créatives et remplies de joie.
    je m'envole demain matin pour Cebu aux Philippines et je ne suis pas certaine de pouvoir suivre le mon de des blog durant 5 semaines.
    Je vous fais de gros bisous.

  2. Hi I just came across your work and I love it! I'm about to start a new project in my GCSE art course, and I was wondering if there's anywhere in particular you take inspiration from? I love to put a lot of texture in my work but I'm still working on trying to be more adventurous with colour and use brighter slightly less realistic ones like you have so if you have any tips at all about how you go about creating a piece like this I'd be very grateful!
