Black & White Pumpkin Painting


Lately I’ve had the urge to get my paints out. Most of my paintings end up just being doodles or experiments. But, I had the idea of just using black lines to create a Halloween inspired pumpkin painting.  It’s super easy and is a perfect project for kids!

I had a huge empty frame and I was wanting some easy to put in there. So I grabbed a piece of poster board and some black paint.

I taped down a pumpkin shaped piece of paper that I quickly cut out.

Then, I just began making vertical lines.

I just kept filling in the entire area with lines of different widths.

I almost left it like this, but I decided to go in and add horizontal lines for a cross hatched look. (and yes, I was getting black paint spots on my floor. It wiped up, don’t worry)

After everything was dry, I just removed the pumpkin and was done. You could obviously do this same method with any shape or even words. And a smaller scale would go much quicker.

I think it looks festive with my black, white and metallic fall decor!
