Step 1: Initial Sketch
Begin by lightly sketching your composition with a pencil. Outline the mug, pie, pumpkin, and leaves, ensuring the proportions fit nicely within your canvas.
Step 2: Background Base
Mix a soft pink shade and uniformly apply it over the background. This warm tone will act as a lovely contrast to the rich fall colors to come.
Step 3: Main Elements Outlining
With a thin brush, redefine the outlines of the mug, pie, and leaves. Then, paint the base of the mug with a mid-tone color to establish its form.
Step 4: Adding Main Colors
Fill in the main elements. Use dark blue for the fabric, creating a base for later details. Paint the pumpkin pie and the decorative pumpkin, and don't forget the autumn leaf, which adds to the fall feeling.
☝️Quick Tip: Start with thin layers of paint and gradually build up to the thicker ones for more control and depth.
Step 5: Detailing
Now comes the magic! Add cream to the pumpkin pie, the floral ornament on the mug, and define the folds in the fabric. Carefully apply light and shadow to bring depth and realism to your painting.
