Pumpkin Sketching

Joined the Anacortes Sketchers this afternoon for a beautiful Fall afternoon sketching at Gordon's Skagit Farm in the Skagit Valley.  Tried 2 opposite techniques in my sketches today:  #1 tight and detailed and #2 loose and piling on the paint.  #2 was more fun.

#1 The Pumpkin Lady
#2 Pumpkins & Cosmos


  1. Although I am generally an advocate of keeping it loose, I like the Pumpkin Lady best. I love the fanciful subject matter and the background treatment. Looked like a great sketching venue. Wish I could have gone.

  2. Ditto! I like how you handled the background/foreground. And composition.
