Classic Christmas

Start with the scrolling top of Santa’s sleigh.
Add the sides and bottom.
Decorate the sleigh, and add it’s skates!

Festive Foliage

With a darker, bluish green (remember your color mixing lesson?), paint some branches in a circle. If you don’t connect them, it’s easier to think of them as separate branches.
Add your fir needles off the main branches with short, quick strokes.
The less uniformity the more natural looking, so don’t stress and enjoy!
