'it's that time of year..'

Pin It
oil on gallery wrap canvas, 5x7 (13x18cm) 
My brother and his family were visiting from Australia the last few weeks and we went for a few days to Disneyland Europe.  One day when we went into the park very early I noticed the dramatic light on one of these Micky pumpkins with the dark blue waterfall as a nice backdrop.

I prepared this canvas with a Gamblin oil ground which makes a nice surface to paint on. The oil doesn't get absorbed as quickly as is the case on an acrylic gesso primed canvas.
The palette used here was ultramarine blue dark, transparent oxide red, cad red medium, cad yellow light, titanium white and a tiny bit of permanent rose for the reflected colormix.
