Don't you just love these little minature pumpkins?? When my kids were little we used to grow them in our garden. Nowadays I just buy them at the farm stand. Pumpkins, like peaches, are wonderful to paint because of their glowing warm colors. That gives me a chance to push the surrounding colors the opposite way towards cool blues and greens. Artists call this a complementary color scheme. These opposite color families produce colors of different wave lengths which causes a vibration of sorts that your eye picks up. This kind of color tension is very visually rich and exciting. There's really a lot going on in this small simple painting. Enjoy!
