Christmas sketches

Self portrait
pen & ink, watercolour

Nutcracker
pen & ink, watercolour

I've gotten through Christmas Day with not eating too much or being too lazy. A first for me! I also managed some sketching as well - a quick self portrait and a scene of Christmas from by the Christmas tree with a Rapidograph pen and watercolour wash. These were from life. I wanted to see what I could accomplish in a quick session of about 40 minutes each.

I am so impressed you got work done! I love those nutcrackers! Great SP too - that is on my todo list for this week.

How industrious! I really like the self-portrait.

Congrats on getting through the festivities without over-indulging. We skipped supper on Christmas Day and felt a lot better for it!
