Christmas in September?
Actually, I was trying to plan ahead for once and try to design our own Christmas cards this year. Even with all this advance planning, I'm not doing so great!
This poinsettia is the only painting that's turned out very well so far but, then again, I'm not spending a whole lot of time painting either.
This painting is gouache used in a sort of a transparent watercolor fashion. Of course, I wanted the more opaque look for reproduction which is why I chose the gouache. It was painted on watercolor paper though.
Is this the design for our cards this year? I don't know - we'll just have to see what else I can come up with.
