Halloween and Dia de Muertos

On Sunday, I was working in my sketchbook on my Hallow's Eve page....I had a painting of a pumpkin patch up on my easel in it's beginning stages that I was going to finish for Halloween....

As I was fussing in my sketchbook....I got inspired by the photo I used as part of my collage....it used greens, siennas and golds to tint the spread....the dark greens made an eerie menacing sky...As I sketched and thought out the process, and idea popped into my head to use this color scheme to do a Halloween painting...and I even had the perfect photo of an abandoned farm house to use that I took while I was in Snow Hill.....
