We are doing this fun pumpkin gnome on a 4x12 canvas! This is the perfect fall art piece to create for a gift or some festive home decor. I will show you step-by-step how to paint this gnome from start to finish! Learn how to create this quick and easy gnome art piece.

Grab your tracer, tape it to your canvas, place graphite paper underneath, and trace your gnome onto your canvas with a stylus.

I am going to start by painting his beard. First, add a coat of white and then mix in some black to create a gray beard. Then, paint his hat and shoes with black paint. Paint his hat brim and pumpkin with orange paint. I'll also mix in some yellow and black to my pumpkin to create some shadows and highlights. Use brown paint for the stem. Finally, I'll use Cool Bisque (a peachy color) to paint his nose and hands.

Now we will add our details! Where the hat bends, I am going to add some highlights with white paint. Then, I'll paint a little patch with green and yellow paint with some white lines. I'll also add some white highlights and black shadows to the orange brim of his hat. I'm going to take the end of a paintbrush, dip it into my orange paint, and add polka dots to the hat. I'll also add some black polka dots to the orange brim.

Paint a quick background with some white paint and a little bit of yellow mixed in. 

Grab your graphic pen and add some detail lines. I'll add short strokes around his hat, nose, beard, pumpkin, and shoes. I'm also going to paint a little spider body and then use my pen to draw a little web hanging from the hat and some legs. 

We're going to elevate our canvas using blocks. Mix 1/2 ounce of resin and stir gently for three minutes. Pour the resin onto your glass and spread it onto your canvas using your gloved fingers or brush.

Use a heat gun to pop your bubbles. Keep your heat moving at all times!
