I’m feeling almost caught up with holiday projects: scrapbooking is up to date, Christmas shopping is almost done, house is decorated, and Christmas cards are ready to be mailed once the annual letter is written and tucked inside.
So, I’ve been doing some light-hearted winter/Christmas-themed watercolor painting. Snowmen are fun for me.
This little guy was completed following a tutorial by Maria Raczynska. It’s always harder than it looks.
