Where has this year gone?! I can't believe it's almost Christmas…the best time of the year! I’m looking forward to spending the next few days at home with the ones I love most!
Back in September, I was contacted about doing a painting for a Christmas card. I was really excited about this opportunity, but nervous at the same time. The ideas were unlimited. "Merry & Bright” (below) was the final product. I had so much fun with this painting!
I played around with lots of different ideas for this one. It definitely got me in the Christmas spirit… blaring Christmas music and sippin' some red wine helped too. J Here are some ideas I started with:
I wanted to play around with colorful branches and bright colors. The challenge with watercolors is, unlike acrylics or oils, you cannot layer the colors on top of each other as well. So, the bright branches were a challenge to create. Ultimately, I was very happy with the way these trees turned out!
Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year from Painting on Patterson!! I wish each of you a bright & fun holiday season! See you in 2015!!
