#Inktober 1/31: Pumpkin

Welcome to October!

Autumn is one of my favorite seasons, and it seemed fitting to direct my Inktober project towards the everyday scenes. If you missed my post on Inktober, check it out here. I will be sketching in ink (no color – which is so hard for me!) to stretch my creative muscle in a different way.

To kick it off, I visited the pumpkin patch out my door, which is part of the farm I live on.

Enjoy!

      Wonderful! It is my first time, but you know I am trying to work on creative challenges. What’s your theme? I would love to see it.

        Oh, its my first time too!
        I’m doing according to the prompts by Poetry Falls on Instagram, where I write a poem, and a corresponding art work. It’s up on headhighintheclouds.wordpress.com
        I’m loving what you’re doing so far!

        We should! I’m easy to find. I’m at Pari617 and Pari_drawsandpoets (this is where I put up all my poetry and art work).

  2. Beautiful pumpkin drawing, Melissa! I love pumpkins – they taste and smell deliciously πŸ˜„
    Happy autumn! πŸ˜„πŸπŸ‚

      Thank you ! I really love pumpkin. A week or so ago I made a pumpkin curry with coconut milk and curry paste….delicious but it sure had a spicy kick to it. And the color is so fitting for the fall color palette.

      To you get a splendid color change in the landscape in Germany?

      1. Mmmh! That sounds awfully delicious! I mostly turn my pumpkins into soup or pies, or just roast them and serve the slices with sea salt, pepper and olive oil – yummy! πŸ˜€

        We do get a color change here in the landscape but itΒ΄s nothing as brilliant as I imagine it to be in your corner of the world πŸ˜‰ But a walk through the park can look quite picturesque now too. Will try to make some pictures of it! πŸ™‚

        Have a wonderful Sunday! xxx

        Oh, please do! I dream of what they landscapes look like where you are. The differences are what make our own corners of the world unique, aren’t they?

        And I love the simplicity of salt, pepper and olive oil. Delicious!

        Sending you autumn joy from the Pacific Northwest!
