ArtVenture Contest. Waiting for Halloween / Esperando Halloween
Regards! this is my entry for this week's Art Venture contest, which is themed Autumn. In my country we do not have seasons, as I have never traveled I have never really known autumn, however, thanks to movies, videos and television series, something I like about autumn is the decorations to celebrate Halloween, so for this contest I made a drawing that I titled "Waiting for Halloween", it is a girl who waits with her pumpkin under a tree surrounded by dry autumn leaves.
Another thing that comes to my mind with autumn is the story of the writer Julio Garmendia whose title is "The leaf that had not fallen in its autumn", it is one of my favorite stories, autumn is a metaphor of life and of how a leaf refuses to fall from the tree, clinging to it despite the wind, that is, it clings to life and does not want to die, this old leaf sees how the leaves fall and the tree is left alone, it sees how soon it is filled with snow and as in spring new green leaves are born but she is still there brown refusing to fall. A long time ago I made a publication about that story, so I leave you the link in case you want to read.

Title: Waiting for Halloween
Author: Irene Navarro
Technique: Watercolor and pen on cardboard
Dimensions: 20x 20 centimeters
To start this drawing, I made a sketch with HB graphite pencil, making little pressure on the paper.
I applied the watercolor in layers starting with ocher yellow for all the sections of the drawing that needed it.
I applied vermilion watercolor to start giving more strength, as well as a little Crimson Red Lake which is more red.
I applied watercolor tan sienna (Burt Sienna) to start giving the brown tones.
Then I applied watercolor tan shadow (Burnt Umber).
Later I began to apply cerulean blue for the girl's pants and hat, purple for the sweater, I also applied violet on the shadows of the trees.
To finish I made the details of the figure and some other details with black pen.
