The holidays are upon us, store windows are decorated, Christmas lights are blinking. Well this morning at 6:00a.m.,while I made coffee, I turned the TV on to find "A Christmas Carol" on the tube, the 1938 version. I love Dickens, especially A Christmas Carol. Every year I think I must watch at least 4 versions, some twice. Ever since I was a kid, I loved this story. When I was young we would go to my aunts house for Christmas eve and every year they would play A Christmas Carol on Christmas eve, I wouldn't leave until I saw the ghost of Christmas past, I thought of her as an angel. I was just mesmerized by her glow.
Some of my favorite movies at this time of year are:
A Christmas Carol, several versions
The Bishops Wife
What are your favorite Christmas time movies?

This morning I watched the 1st video of Fabulous Faces, and this is the sketch I did while watching the video. The homework for this week is to create a front-faced portrait and play with lighting & different types of shading.
Fabulous Faces videos are from Willowing.ning.com

The next step is to finish the christmas card for the swap, too many ideas, and I need to have it finished and in the mail by 12/15.

My on going practice making whimsies, and I do need practice.
The paper didn't hold up as well as I had hoped, even though it said it was for watercolor. Well Mixed Media/Watercolor. Maybe I need to let dry between layers. Oh well, live and learn. I used a rubber stamp on printed paper for the wings.
