Tonight I am teaching a private workshop to beginners, and one of the projects we are coloring is this lovely Fall pumpkin image that we shared as a freebie a year ago or so. It was really popular, so I wanted to use it again.
It is generic, as I am using a variety of colors, and no two attendees will have the same colors. You can easily adapt any of your own color combos into this project. However, this is a truly beginner project. The lines show you where to put shadows, and the areas are simple enough that beginners should have no problem experimenting. Note that when teaching beginners, it is sometimes easier to color large images. I have printed the blank picture out to be about 4 or 5 in. wide, so my attendees can have an easy time. This handout is meant to be printed at 8.5 x 11 in. so beginners can really see the image enlarged and understand where to put shadows.
I hope you find this useful. Please use this to teach others!
