Christmas Card Continued - 1st Watercolor Layer

Here's the first swipe of watercolor. Next I will go in with my super-magni-vison goggles and get the detail washes down. After that, the colored pencils to pull out highlights, deepen shadows and define some edges. Then I'll put down some snowflakes with white gouache and call it good.
(This scan is a bit blurry because the painting is stapled to a board.)

This is lovely! And now we know what Polar Bears have been missing all this time, a smart looking cap!

Keep up the good work Kimberly!

Hey, Brian. Yes, the caps are only available through the North Pole Land's End catalog.
Thanks for your kind comments.

this is wonderful. I look forward to seeing the next stages. Amazing to consider that you know what comes next... I am quite naive that way.

Tammie, I rarely know what I'm to do next with a painting. This is rare and I'll probably end up bluffing my way through to the end on this one.
Thanks for stopping by.
