Fall studies of apples and pumpkins

The weeks are going by so fast. These are some of the studies I have done. Fall is such a beautiful time of the year. I am presently working on a 11x14 acrylic of the nursery we painted at last week. Happy Painting everyone.

  1. HI there Joan! ... Grand and sensitive siudies.... both of these pieces!

    Great modelling of form has produced very attractive and accurate rendering of these Fall fellas!

    Both are gems Joan! Great Work!

    Good Painting and Sketching!
