Daily painting October 23

Here is what I painted today. It is oil on 9 x 12 canvas panel. The pumpkin color was a challenge..certainly more so than I thought it would be. Also I used a medium (Neo megilp) in the background and it made for a lot of glare in photographing it. Well, despite the difficulties, I am glad I painted today!

Your pumpkin has great presence. Rich color too, set off by a creative dark background. As usual your composition is strong. Not easy to paint one pumpkin I would imagine. Excellent!
