Day 17 - Three Little Pumpkins

Three Little Pumpkins
watercolor, 6" x 6"

I bought these mini pumpkins back in October along with a bunch of those little ornamental gourds that look like birds. The "birds" dried out and got moldy long ago, but these still look good and I couldn't bear to throw them away or put them in the compost. I love their squashed shape and their elegant skinny stems.

Working in watercolor and pen in the last few days reminded me that I need to start reading through some of the art books I got for Christmas - Joyce Hicks watercolor book and a book on Urban Sketching by Thomas Thorspecken.
