I wanted this picture to be done before the holidays, but it just didn't pan out. We had a lot going on, with my dog, Sirius, becoming very ill and nearly passing, I just didn't make anything but his care and comfort a priority. Thankfully he pulled through and is possibly okay, so I'm trying to find my colouring groove again.
For this picture I wanted to focus on the more wintery feels instead of the holiday feels. I'm awful at pastel colouring so it was hard for me to try and keep the colours light. I used my Holbein pastel colours as well as white, which I never use to blend but it definitely helped. I bought a surprising amount of holiday themed books considering I only managed to finish these two pictures.
