Is it too early to watercolor pumpkins??? I sure hope not; our weather feels like fall this week and I’m totally thrilled with it!
I’ve always been fascinated with the crazy varieties of pumpkins….there are so many colors, shapes, and patterns. The photo reference I found is of Lady Godiva pumpkins, a rare breed, taken by an Austrian photographer.

Watch the video below and scroll to the end to leave comments or questions — or click HERE to watch it on YouTube and leave comments over there. I read both dutifully!
Fresh Pumpkins for beginners
I know the Lady Godivas are a challenge – and not many will try them. But lots of other pumpkins are paintable!
I put together a little “snack” of a class with this still life broken into 6 steps so you can follow along easily! It’s at Artventure, NOT Art-Classes—the password is different, and it won’t show up in your courses list at Art-Classes.
Join by tapping here then look for the class in the left menu; if Apple hasn’t approved it yet by this morning, it’ll be soon; you can go to the browser version of https://artventure.mn.co/ and purchase it there, then find it in your app.
This course benefits the community at Artventure; I need help paying for it, so every class you take makes the community possible!
I’m heading out on a plane later today to go see mom! Please be patient as I’ll be a bit slow in replying to email and social. I’ve got content scheduled for next week so hang in and enjoy!
