This was the last page of my very first watercolor Moleskine and sketchbook number twenty-six in my sketchbook career. It took me a while to get into this sketchbook, but once I did... I was hooked. I purchased a new one right before this one was full so I would never have to be without blank pages.
This sketch is an image of a pumpkin, or to be specific, a cross between a pumpkin and a gourd. That explains the bumpy warts on the surface. I purchased the pumpkin at my local pumpkin patch last October. The basketball sized pumpkin sat on my hearth until it was time to put it to rest. I thought about adding color to the sketch, but lately I am enamored with simple black and white line work. On this page I tried something a bit different and wrote quite a bit and used the words as a background. Overall I think it was effective and now I have some memories to look back upon.
