Halloween Painting

I’m working on a new painting for Halloween, inspired by the Pumpkin Queen painting I did a while back. This will be one of my larger paintings, a 15×30 canvas.

Here is the initial sketch. I paint directly on the canvas. Mostly it looks like a bunch of circles and squiggly lines. lol!

I paint over the unwanted lines, cleaning things up a bit, and add a little more detail before I start work on the background.

then I slowly work my way to the foreground.

I’m almost half way done with the painting now. I’ll probably take me a few more weeks to finish up as I tend to work on more than one painting at a time. 🙂
