This is my version of the Sleepy Hollow Pumpkin (love that movie!)  I picked up a pumpkin while getting groceries the other day and had fun carving it -- it's been so long since I last carved a pumpkin!

This low-key value range is quite a contrast to my last small painting (in my last post), which featured a small pumpkin gourd in high key values.  It was quite a challenge to get the glow of the candlelight inside the pumpkin -- it had to be really dark on the outside -- something I am seemingly allergic to.  But I am always hearing: "Color gets all the credit, value does all the work."  So I keep trying!  

Below is my carved (not-so-much) masterpiece.
