I tried something new in the studio this past weekend with paint. I have been creating lumina or moon pumpkins (cream colored) for the last several years and I decided to try some golden colors with orange and black to see if I liked the look. "Stepping Out Jack" is the first pumpkin figure painted in this color palette. The coloration is similar to several gourd/squash heads I have previously painted, so I'm thinking I still need to go more orange toned on the next piece.
I am also having lots of fun with the smaller pumpkins I'm adding to the pieces, but realized while looking at this photograph they appear sort of "shrunken head" like when being held by the stem by the seated pumpkin boy. I swear my smiling pumpkin boys are not head hunters or cannibals...although that did just give me an idea for a new piece!
Hope you like this new fellow!!
Have a great week!
