Watercolor Christmas Cards

Spent an afternoon arting with Jen.  This is always so inspiring, and fun, and as usual, although we’re working on the same idea or process, our pieces turn out quite differently from each other.

We did a Santa each, and a funky little bird wearing a toque.

Jen’s.

See how gray my Santa Face is?  I messed up his eyes, badly.  He looked evil and insane, not quite the look I was going for, so I covered up the paint/ink with white Gouache.  As usual, I didn’t wait long enough for the bottom layer to dry, so the white turned to a hideous gray.  He looks like a Cadaver Santa.  Doesn’t matter, though.  These were just test pieces to see if we wanted to make more of this particular image.

    I like Cher’s bird and Jen’s Santa the best – both are surrealistic……

    So admit your creativity. Skating Santa is a beaut.
