Countdown to Christmas

Countdown to Christmas

Lovely card and a good idea Thea. Are you inserting the choccies ;o))

Tried to work out how to do that, Carole, but it compromised the artistic integrity of the painting lol! Thank you for your comment. Still not sure which one I will print. I have one more to post and then I'll decide. Perhaps I could ask people to vote when I have posted all three?

Charming Thea and looking forward to the third and will be voting!!

Very nice Thea and I like the title!

Great fun can count me in on the vote!

Thank you very much Michael, Louise and Fiona for having a look and leaving such nice comments. Regarding the vote - I'm now running scared..... what happens if all three get 'nil pointes'!! Will post the 3rd after a suitable interval - I never like to flood the gallery with my artistic endeavours. I did put the 3rd version in for the POL Christmas card competition, but sadly it didn't find favour. Didn't expect it to but there is always that little glimmer of mis-placed hope, isn't there?

Lovely little card, simple but very christmassy with the falling snow and small houses amongst xmas trees. Count me in for voting.

i love the muted colours .............shame about the choclates thou

Thank you very much Satu and Ruthy - No 3 will be posted very soon. Ruthy, you could just reach for the odd chocolate while viewing the painting....? Would that work?

So very, very lovely, Thea! The palette is simply gorgeous, and the scene is just so charming!

Hang on Studio Wall

My second Christmas card design which is my version of an advent calender. I tried to use more muted colours rather than the bright red/green palette of Christmas in order to give a softer look. Watercolour on Langton 200lbs.

I am a watercolourist first and foremost as I love the qualities of the medium, its riskiness and unpredictability. I started painting about 8 years ago and it has now become an integral part of my life. Hopefully, I will continue to paint into my dotage as I am given to understand that you can…
