Pie Pumpkins. A painting that needs help
I am not happy with this painting. I might try and rescue it with some pen work, but first I think a redo may be in order. They say practice make perfect right? I really liked the display of pie pumpkins at the store I work at last week, so I took a picture to work from at home. I am a sucker for anything autumnal and also afraid to put bright cadmium red straight onto the page. So this is a good image to play with....just have to work on getting them to seem weighted. I don't believe these are heavy objects sitting on each other in this piece. Deeper shadows for sure.
