Here is the Jack O Lantern portrait finished as well as another figurine from the 1950’s of a cat and pumpkin. I can’t get enough of these jolly yet macabre Halloween decorations!

Halloween Portraits

This is my favorite time of year, I get so inspired thinking about Halloween! I’ve always had a love of vintage Halloween decorations and have a nice collection of things mostly from the 40’s and 50’s (lots of Beistle made). I’ve recently been looking over things from the 20’s, mostly german made that are just gorgeous and soooo perfect for portraits! I must have 20 items sketched out so far but am starting with a few plastic ornaments from the 40’s the first of which is this Jack O Lantern. This is the sepia underpainting, color will follow.
