petite pumpkin patch

autumn artwork

This autumn I am pleased to offer a new watercolour series, inspired by the gorgeous autumn harvest in Ontario. From petite pumpkin portraits to acrylic landscapes of late summer dahlia fields, I will be painting in & outdoors during this beautiful season.

As much as I enjoy summer, I love autumn. Pumpkins in the fields. The smell of warm autumn leaves in the forest. Cool and colourful. Beautiful to paint.

These pieces are only available as original art… not prints. You won’t find them mass produced… just down to earth, pencil and paint on paper.

Quick and painterly, these studies are of pumpkins found at local Ontario farms. Pie pumpkins are my favourite, they are so small and often have fun curly tops left on them.  

did you know that pumpkins are fruit… they are technically berries!

Last autumn I did pencil & watercolour studies of the pie pumpkins we bought at Ontario farms… I love how unique each one is!

care for your artwork

If you have purchased one of my pieces, I have a few tips for caring for original watercolours. Keep them out of direct sunlight (or they will fade) and display in a dry place (or they may get mildewy). If reframing, be sure the watercolours do not sit against the glass surface, as the pencil can rub off and smudge into the watercolours over time. Do not handle the watercolours with dirty fingers or it may leave oils and smudges. Other than that, enjoy!
