Our centerpiece project this week was a pumpkin, picked up at a local fresh market.
An excellent values study. An opportunity to contrast warm/cool yellows and figure out how to add those light green smudges on some parts of the skin. Discussed background and shadow color choices, including the use of complementary colors. And Voila! Two artists sitting next to each other “modeled” the Blue & Orange complementary color principles!

A visit to the produce market and I get carried away with the bounty of Fall colors! What am I going to do with all of these watercolor Gala apples after I get the Cezanne urge out of my system? If I continue to eat An Apple A Day. . . how many days are going to have apples in the house?
