Fall is one of my favorite times of the year with the leaves changing color all around us. Our house has dozens of maple trees and they look so beautiful as we’re surrounded by orange, gold and sometimes red leaves. Of course it’s also the time of year when we see pumpkins popping up everywhere to celebrate the fall harvest, Halloween, or Thanksgiving. I created this fall pumpkin coloring page to celebrate the changing of the seasons.
I surrounded my graphic pumpkin illustration with the sweet message, “a fallen leaf is nothing more than a summer’s wave goodbye.” Although it’s always hard to see the summer days go, I’m so grateful they leave with such a bright celebration of color.
I chose to color my pumpkin design using crayons. Sometimes I think we don’t give these elementary art tools enough credit. If you keep a sharpener nearby you can create beautiful details. I found my daughter’s favorite metallic crayons for this page and love how they give a little shimmer to the page.
How to Add Depth When Coloring
I decided to fill each patterned section with a single color and still achieved depth by adjusting the pressure on the crayon. I also expanded the traditional orange color palette and included other warm tones such as shades of brown and even raspberry. Surrounding the pumpkin with cool shades of blue makes it stand out on the page while still adding a bit of fun to the text. I hope you, or maybe your kids, enjoy adding a pop of color to this pumpkin coloring page.
