Pumpkin-Pumpkin wk 4

Wow! Week 4 this is great fun and I am learning so much. Week 4 challenge of white pumpkins is all in waterbased oils. I used only 2 colors plus white, but unfortunately the painting posted does not show much of the yellow, but I did use it in the purples and whites to tone down the purples. One thing I really want to improve on is to do a painting in 1 day(a couple of hours) instead of it taking me 2 or 3 days to complete just one. That is my next challenge for myself, hope I can do it. Anyway I want anyone who is reading these posts to know that Karin Jurick is a fantastically gifted and giving artist. I pray God bless her richly with all His goodness. Thank you Karin.

oh... very nice Victoria. You do still lifes very well. That shade/tone of purple is very pleasing to the eye. It takes discipline to limit your colors the way you did.

Thank you Alice, actually limiting colors is the only way I seem to be able to paint lately. Used to paint very photorealistically using all colors I saw in a photo, but now I want to just do things simply. Thank you for your kind encouragement.
