In this piece my goal was to bring out the lightness throughout the dark shadows. I wanted to show deep contrast with the light and the dark. I used the back light to bring out the shadows. The most difficult challenge was making the pumpkins look three dimensional. I met the challenge by blocking out the light and dark and then adding deeper images. I can squint my eyes and just look at the color. I used Edvard Munch because he uses his feeling into his paintings. I liked Hans picture because he really brought out the skull in his picture. If I had a do-over, I would pick a different angle to paint. My greatest feeling about my painting is the way the shadow drapes over the pumpkin.
