Last week we went on an apple, pumpkin and waterfall tour to enjoy the fall leaves and get some apples and pumpkins! So, I thought you might be needing to follow up a trip to the apple orchard or pumpkin patch with some art tutorials too! First, apples…
Apple Art and Resources
Apples straight from the orchard are the best! Which variety will you paint? You can create this red delicious, above, with a painterly effect in Apple or Pumpkin Chalk Pastel Tutorial.

Pumpkin Art and Resources
Pumpkins can be smooth, lumpy and bumpy and come in all shapes, sizes and colors. My personal favorites are the fat ones that are deep orange. Make a pumpkin in chalk pastels!
