Let’s paint those pumpkins! (Watercolor tutorial by YOUR request!)

Hi friends! Thanks for the feedback on the photos yesterday. I had a big response to paint the porcelain doll pumpkins so that is what we will do. Check out this photo, I went outside to snap a pic in the natural light and my curious chickens had to sneak a peek LOL! Another funy chicken thing, some of the hens have begun laying over the past month and we are never sure who leaves the eggs in the coop. We let the chickens out each afternoon to free-range figuring they are like our old ones who laid eggs in the morning, well my son spotted something white behind the wood splitter in the wood shed today and there were 10 eggs in pile! I don’t know when they were laid, do you think they are OK to eat? Is there a way to tell? I hate to waste them but I don’t want anyone to get sick either, silly chickens. 😛

Now on to the painting! I used my new Turner watercolors I got from Jerrys a couple weeks ago because I wanted to see how they worked after being dried in a palette and the paints were still semi moist and they preformed very well. I have to admit I was skeptical because the 18 set was on sale for under $30 but they are great, a solid value. I just wanted to let you know in case you were considering them. Disclosure: Jerry’s Artarama is a sponsor but they are not sponsoring this post. Now, let’s paint!

Video!

I hope you had fun with this. If you want orange or green pumpkins go for it! The drawing and painting skills are the same, just look for the value in the painting (the highlights and shading) and have fun with it! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
