Halloween: Colorful Pumpkin

Colorful Pumpkin by Karen Gadient, 2015

We’d gotten a cheerful orange pumpkin with plans to carve it, only―being in a different state―we missed the family carving event. So, I painted it.

The first two layers of yellow gouache didn’t quite do the trick, so I added layers of yellow and gold acrylic, which didn’t have the effect I wanted either. So, naturally… I decided to go nuts and splatter-paint the whole thing. Which actually worked out well and now it’s a bright addition to our Halloween decor. For now. Next week, it’ll be pie. ;)

Did you carve or paint a pumpkin this year? Have you ever done so?
