I am presently up in Damariscotta, Maine visiting family just in time for the Damariscotta Pumpkinfest & Regata. While walking this morning I took a few photos of some of the artists at work designing their pumpkins. Usually most of them are decorated on Friday, but except for a few diehards yesterday who set up and worked under tents, the rain kept most of the artists from working. These artists were out there at 7 am working on their designs.
My Inktober sketch is of one of the artist working on her pumpkin.
I just couldn't leave that sketch without color...especially with the trees starting to change. As I continued walking along Main Street I captured a few of the other artists too. Some I couldn't sketch because of the crowds of people downtown.
This lady was setting an eyeball into her pumpkin face.
Here is her pumpkin later much further along.
This one was a sea theme.
Sunflowers were cut into this pumpkin.
