Orange Orange Pumpkins

6 x 6 in, oil on linen on panel

I bought these mini-pumpkins at the farmer's market a while ago, and had them on our table as decoration through Thanksgiving. But I finally decided to paint them. I focused on the purity of orange in the light by painting these areas first, and by using the yellow and red without blue tint in them, while the remaining area shares the combination of blue, red, and yellow at some degree. My favorite area is the reflection of the rear pumpkin in the casting shadow of the front one.
