Christmas Card Painting Steps

Christmas Card stocking 1

Using pyrrol red, I paint the stocking shape very quickly, then splatter it with red.

I reinforce a few shadow areas with maroon perylene.


Christmas Card stocking 2

I add some stripes up top.

Another option might be the initial of the recipient, a tiny Christmas tree, or some jingle bells!

Christmas Card stocking 3

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!

Christmas Card stocking 4

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!
