Halloween, Pumpkins and CitraSolv®

I love seeing all of the pumpkins displayed along the road side at Halloween time. It always brings back memories of an earlier time in my life, which I blogged about in 2009. You can read the story here

I decided to create a pastel pencil drawing of pumpkins on CitraSolv® textured paper using the techniques described on page 118 in my Mix It Up eBook.  The CitraSolv® textured paper I chose seemed like the perfect Halloween background for the pumpkins. Lots of ghostly things lurking in the ink textures. What do you think?

I also recorded some clips on my iPhone as I worked, but I was not happy with the results. I still have a lot to learn about using an iPhone for videos.
