December 17

Start your winter bird with it’s beak.
Do some “feathery” outlines around the top of your bird’s head and down it’s chest.
Give him a nice full, feathery tail, and perhaps a sprig of mistletoe in his mouth?

Festive Foliage

Paint a green branch angling downwards.
Add some tapered leaves off of the established branches.
Variation in the leaves is always nice; every leaf doesn’t have to be filled in, you can leave some white highlights.
