The Cornucopia, the Horn of Plenty.
The woven cone shape with fruit and vegetables spilling out of it.
It is full and thus over flowing with the harvest.
Full of colors and textures and shadows.
Drawing is of course important but THINKING of all the produce and items that could fill this Autumn scene is part of the FUN.
|Yellow, yellow green, pale in value make up the base coat that unifies the composition.|
|Pale blue us used for the shading and cast shadow.|

|Keeping the light source in mind as you work allows you to adjust the darks and lights of each color.|
|The darkest area is in the Horn of Plenty, where the light can not reach.|
|Add cast shadows from one object on another.|
Try it will pencil, this doesn't have to be a painting.
