Was on the road one Fall day – was early afternoon. A hot sun was creating some nice contrasts. Caught this old farmer unloading a batch of pumpkins on his roadside market stand. Loved the sharp highlights and deep shadows on the pumpkins, tractor, and the farmer. For this painting, I forced myself to stay with a larger round brush than I’m used to using. Was just trying to capture the essence – wanted to keep the detail to a minimum.
