painted pumpkins – daily sketchbook

Apparently it’s pumpkin spice season now. September is definitely giving autumn vibes already and I’m definitely not mad at it given the hot hot hot summer we’ve had in London. What’s your opinion on the painted pumpkin craze?

This page had an acrylic* background that I painted, like the last one for the mushrooms yesterday, months or perhaps years ago. Overlaid with gouache mushroom shapes, Posca pencils worked beautifully over both types of paint, and resulted in this vibrant illustration.

Lunch today was pumpkin soup, perhaps that’s why I decided to paint these today! It was certainly fun and now I am even more excited about autumn than I was before.
