Bittersweet with Pumpkins

Bittersweet with Pumpkins   watercolor on Khadi   13.75 x 10
is another work done in our watercolor class with autumnal subjects being piled into the center of the tables.  We used our view-finders to crop out a section that we wanted to paint.  While there is much to be said for this method of direct observation, I find, personally, that there is just too much "given" for my mind to creatively react with the subject.  Over the years, I have found my pleasure to reside in the interaction between subject and ground, which, of necessity, needs to be more empty for this exchange to occur. 

O.K.  I like the colors.
