Pumpkin painting combos  1. Ultramarine blue + burnt umber for a great black. (no black from a tube!)  2. Cadmium yellow medium +  Naples yellow = a nice highlight color above an eyebrow or above a lip.  3. Cadmium red medium + cadmium orange = rosy cheeks, nose, or ears  4. Burnt sienna + cadmium red medium, applied under the eyebrows or below the bottom lip for the sense of a shadow on the pumpkin’s skin. Or makes spooky smudges under the eyes!

Since we like to decorate in early October, we found that our jack-o’-lanterns were looking pretty rough by October 31.

Halfway up the front, mark spots for eyes 2 inches apart. With a craft knife, cut an X for each eye (an adult's job), then widen each of the holes to measure 3/8 inch across…
