Merry Christmas! I hope that you enjoy a wonderful Christmas spent with family and friends.
Above is a watercolor painting that reminds me of Christmas since the birds are nestled in the shelter of trees - both holly and pine.
Watercolor tip for this painting:
The snow on the tree limbs was masked out before painting to keep the snow crisp and white. No white paint was used on the tree limbs; the white of the paper "paints" the snow. White paint was only used in the final step to add a few snow flakes falling between the branches.
Merry Christmas! May this holiday season bring you much happiness and many memories to record with paper and paint in the upcoming year.
