Some late night painting going on right now to finish up my Christmas cards. I'm mass producing a whole bunch of simple and small cards using some fine strokes. None of these have a heavy look to them, using only 4 colors - brown, aqua blue, a touch of red for the bird, and a dot of black (literally) for the bird's eye.
I really wanted to give this a very icy cold and bare look. All that is left is to add a few more stark branches to the trees, a sentiment, and some scattered glitter for the snow.
