Christmas Card Stocking
All paints I use are M. Graham transparent watercolors. Other brands I highly recommend are Daniel Smith and Schminke.
- Nickel Azo Yellow
- Pyrrol Red
- Maroon Perylene
Christmas Card Painting Steps
Using pyrrol red, I paint the stocking shape very quickly, then splatter it with red.
I reinforce a few shadow areas with maroon perylene.
I add some stripes up top.
Another option might be the initial of the recipient, a tiny Christmas tree, or some jingle bells!
Next, I painted some cheerful oranges on the mantel. Remember, you're starting with plain balls, so they could be Christmas ornaments or anything you can think of!
More splattering and a bit more definition with a viridian tinted nickel azo yellow.
This is the quickest stocking to do this year. It just takes a few minutes and is a lot of fun!
Don't hold yourself to just red and stripes, either. A nice Christmas green, details on the stocking, make it your own!
Merry Christmas and a Joyful Holiday to All!
