Creative Exploration

Pumpking Painting

Ar first I was afraid. I was petrified, thinking I would never get it right but then I kept painting and…

Love the process. There are no mistakes. These thoughts kept repeating in my mind. Oh and I was thinking of an interesting way to start this post, The song I will survive popped in my head.

Here’s what I did from left to right:

  • watercolor over white pencil and shade with watercolor pencil
  • a few layers of watercolor and then shade with pencil
  • watercolor on wet paper then when dry shade with watercolor pencil
  • salt over watercolor and shade with pencil.

I still need to add a quote and a few finishing touches. I plan on a quote that’ s about…all these images of pumpkins in various sizes and they all have a unique shape and stem. Isn’t nature telling us how beautiful we all are?

Here’s more ways to decorate pumpkins. Talk about creative exploration. I was testing out my new paint palette and inspired by a think.make.share. post

Lunch time draw. I should have taken a picture of the ones my friend made. Here’s mine. The best ideas happen when you let them. I think spot one makes me smile. Good.

Here I had 20 minutes of luch time and markers. This is so much fun. I think it was more like 5 minutes. It would be cute to draw or paint these on tags or paper bags for Halloween treat bags.

I remeber a few years ago, I painted designs on pumpkins with acrylic paint. I should have taken a picture.

Here’s a pumpkin I decorated from stuff around the house.

Tomorrow it’s back to book project. and Friday there’ll be more fall inspired ideas. I got this new project and it involves Rudolph. It’s been busy and I love it. Ok good night.
