Fall Pumpkins and Halloween Orange

PUMPKIN PATCH
Watercolor 8x10
 
One of my favorites colors to paint with is Halloween Orange - one of Cheap Joe's American Journey Watercolors. It is a bright, beautiful color, especially for this time of year. Cheap Joe's is a wonderful art supply company located in beautiful North Carolina where they sell all sorts of art supplies at wonderful prices and offer fantastic workshops all year long. There really is a Joe - he bagan as a pharmacist and sold art supplies in his drugstore and his business grew from there. If you ever need help or have a question and call, a real person with a friendly southern accent answers the phone!

  1. Dear Martha - I too order a lot of my supplies from Cheap Joe's - they are a first class company. Beautiful pumpkin painting - using the complementary blue makes it really outstanding. Thanks for sharing.

  2. VERY UNUSUAL TO SEE BLUE AS A BACK GROUND COLOR IN A FALL PAINTING LIKE THE PUMPKIN PATCH. YOUR PICTURES ARE BEAUTIFUL. I'M 66 AND SOON TO RETIRE AND JUST GETTING BACK INTO PAINTING AND NOT SURE WHICH MEDIUM I WANT TO CONCENTRATE ON, BUT SEEING YOUR WATERCOLORS MAKES ME LEAN MORE TOWARDS THAT MEDIUM. THANKS.
