"Pumpkins in Shadow" & "Pumpkin Pile"

****************This is another example of what underglazing with yellow does as I did on the man waiting at the Office door below. The yellow was put down first, allowed to dry. Then, the pumpkin color and all shadings etc. were added. The highlights were rubbed out and magically the yellow staining pigment survives thus making a bright and dynamic contrast to the local color of the body of the pumpkin.
