They begin as sketches in my journals~
I may have drawn them onto fabric in black ink...
A completely different little character when color is added!
When the light is good & my eyes are 'feeling good' I love to paint.
(Glazing color/texture to my stocking...)
Once the base color is dry I like to layer 'glaze' additional colors for texture...
Here I am softening the texture & edge so my stocking doesn't appear flat.
Adding a few deeper tones will push the edges back & fluff up this mouse nest!
Hope you are staying safe in this winter storm!
Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday~
