Hi friends! I hope you are having a nice weekend. We just got back from my daughters’ holiday concert at their school. Since they are seniors it will be the last one and it was just wonderful to hear the kids sing and play. They are so talented and all of their hard work paid off! Before we get to today’s project I wanted to give you a heads up that I am teaming up with Derwent for their holiday giveaway over on Instagram. Check out my giveaway post with the picture of the amethyst in colored pencils and leave a comment on that Instagram post for a chance to win a Derwent Lightfast set of 72 pencils. I will pick a winner from Intagram comments on 12/14/21 at 6pm so you have till then to enter. Only comments left on that Instagram post will be entered in the drawing. Full rules are also on the giveaway post. Good luck to all that enter!
My video for today tho used another set of pencils by Derwent as well as markers and gouache. It was so much fun to create this artwork and I hope it inspires you to paint a favorite Christmas ornament or nick-knack you own. You can find a real-time version of this tutorial (along with 70 other in-depth art lessons) in Critique Club.
