Little white pumpkins

A few weeks ago the kids brought home some mini pumpkins and gourds, ostensibly to paint cat faces on for halloween. But they ended up on my table being sketched and painted for a while. You might recall having seen some of these a few weeks ago, but here they are again, all together.

It’s really interesting to draw and paint something that’s white: the longer I look at it, the more color I see in it. And how it looks varies so much: with the light, or just with what I see it as that day.


The other nice thing with drawing something over and over is that I get to keep the same subject and vary the media I use. I’ve used watercolor, pencil, brush pen, colored ink, pastels and gouache the the pieces above.

  1. The colours in the first three sketches are quite beautiful. They look how autumn feels – still warm but getting cooler in the evenings.

    Hi Suhita, I too love the first three watercolour sketches, but I also love and relish that you so successfully paint the same subjects in very different styles too. Amazing!

    So beautiful, amazing studies, Suhita!


  4. I really like how you try different media and how different each and every one looks. Very cool, I like them all!
