Happy Halloween

Avery's Pumpkins by Scott Ruthven
24"x12" Oil on Canvas
In this piece, I wanted to capture the vibrant colors and well defined shadows created by the intense late afternoon sun.  I like how the cast shadows made another set of pumpkin shapes too and there are some lovely reflected lights.  The corn and the ground plane were painted using layers of warm and cool transparent washes.

I'm working on a video to show the progression of this work.

Have a fun and safe halloween!


  1. I'm really enjoying this painting. The lighting gives it wonderful drama and movement!

  2. Great composition. It really draws me in. Love the colors also. I'm looking forward to your video!
