Classic Holiday Line and Wash


 I'm really excited to show off my "Christmas Phone Booth," painting from a tutorial by Paul Clark. It took most of the day to paint, but it was so worth it! I used Winsor Newton Cotman watercolor tubes and a bit of Holbein Artists white gouache for the snow. It is painted on Canson 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper and the line was done with a Micron Pen (01).

Though the painting was very challenging, I took my time and I'm so proud of my finished work!

This card is absolutely awesome...such great coloring and then the pop of red with the iconic telephone booth. We went to London in fall of 2019 and I bought telephone booth tree ornaments at Liberty near Picadilly to bring to family and friends! So I just love your card!
