A Month of Pumpkins - Day 5

My friend Theresa shared some pumpkin references with me and this painting is based on one of them. If it looks a little different from my other watercolors that's because I gessoed my watercolor paper first, not completely, I dripped some gesso on it then swirled it around with my brush, let it dry and then painted on top. It gives some really interesting texture underneath the watercolor.
