You're somewhat experienced with the skills necessary to complete this project, but you haven't mastered all the elements, yet.
Step 1
Project Note: Let paint dry between steps.
 
Base coat wood sign in white gesso. 
Step 2
Trace pattern of pumpkin exterior onto plaque using graphite paper. 
Step 3
Paint background, working around pumpkin shape, with Cobalt Turquoise hue acrylic paint. Base coat the pumpkin with Vermillion hue. 
Step 4
Transfer the pattern onto the pumpkin. Use the #3 round brush to highlight the pumpkin's high spots with Cadmium Orange hue acrylic paint. Repeat with Diarylide Yellow.  
Step 5
Shade between the pumpkin sections with Burnt Sienna acrylic paint. Let dry. Repeat with Quinacridone Gold hue. 
Step 6
Dry brush and then add the final highlights with Primary Yellow acrylic paint. Shade around the pumpkin using the ½" angle shader and Prussian Blue hue. When the paint is already dry, use the extender medium in your brush to help blend the paint.  
Step 7
Base coat leaves with Yellow Green Light acrylic paint. Shade the leaves with Pthalo Green Yellow. Highlight the leaves with Primary Yellow. Deepen the shading with the Pthalo Green Yellow mixed with a touch of Prussian Blue hue. 
Step 8
Base coat the pumpkin stem with Burnt Umber acrylic paint. Blend in a little Carbon Black to shade. Highlight with some strokes of Titan Buff. Basecoat the tag with Titanium Buff. Shade with Burnt Umber. 
Step 9
Use the 0 Round Liner to line the "Pumpkins 25c" with Carbon Black acrylic paint watered down to an ink-like consistency. Line the leaves, string, and the entire pumpkin design with the same. Let dry.
