A Month of Pumpkins Day 15

I'm halfway!!

This is exploring the theme I started yesterday when I didn't have as much time to work it out. I'm also going to post this on Watercolor Wednesdays for this week's theme "Cat Magic" so hopefully, now you understand the illustration better. The more I paint with watercolor, the braver I am getting and I dared to explore with paint on the paper not sure exactly where I was going. I don't know if you can tell the difference on the screen but I used hot press watercolor paper and every time I use it, I like it more and more especially for illustrations. It takes a lot of abuse and you can build up your color if you're timid without making as much of a mess as with cold press.

Kathy, I love your pumpkin paintings! I hope you are making a book out of them. They would make an adorable children's book.

Thank you Carol. I think I will have a pretty nice collection when I'm finished. I'm going to have to do something fun with them.
