Painting Pumpkins


Happy Thanksgiving Eve!



Since this is Thanksgiving week I thought I would do a Thanksgiving card for you. FYI I only did ONE and I sent it to my Sister. I had a nice quiet day and thought hmmmmm good day to do some colored pencil work. I find coloring with pencils calming, almost meditative. Working with Copic’s is a bit more fast paced, so it’s nice once in a while to take a Zen day.


I used my Polychromos Pencils for this image. I have about 5 different sets of pencils, and they are really each a bit different. I like to use my Prismacolor to enhance my Copic’s.

  • Upper Pumpkin: 102,107,109, 101
  • Big Pumpkin: 153, 156, 154, 101

  • Small jars: 273, 274, 275
