Have a colourful happy Halloween

Pumpkins Halloween 2017 cropBright autumnal colours in this sketch of pumpkins growing in a field, you know they’re ready to pick when they open their eyes!

I love this time of year, so much colour everywhere, including in my kitchen at the weekend as we carved a couple of pumpkins, which are already collapsing and morphing their cutout images into unrecognisable shapes.
I’m trying to capture that colour with my new Spectrum Noir blending markers, I need some practice but am finding the shading abilities of these pens great fun. I have in the past shied away from markers as I thought they were unblendable and too bold but the subtle shades and vibrancy I achieved with the pumpkin picture has made me think again.
Below you can see the blend achieved on the side of the drawing, plus the pen numbers I used. The line drawing was done with a Spectrum Noir Fineliner 0.8mm.  Pens can be bought in colour ranges and in small or large packs to suit your budget, have a look at the links below for more information and where to buy them.
