Pumpkins, pumpkins, and more pumpkins...in this charming limited edition of a watercolor painting titled “Manuel's Pumpkins” by artist Lotus MacDowell, as a tribute to a young boy she knew. His name was Manuel; he and his brother grew thousands of these to make money. They would be lined up in rows, as far as the eye could see.
Here Lotus has closed in on just a few blazing orange pumpkins, all pushed together on the dark green overgrown grass, with their dry gray stems casting purple shadows on the skins. She has used what is referred to as a limited palette of colors: orange, green and violet and has created all the shades using those alone. What has evolved is a strong, well thought out composition where the subject looks natural, not staged, and is enhanced by this controlled use of color.
