I'm having such fun doing these little ones... they are a challenge for sure. How much detail can I get; how little can I get away with... what techniques will work. For the Winter Woods... which I've titled Christmas Woods and am using for our Christmas card this year.... I tried a technique I've used on larger pieces to see what the results would be and while it didn't work as well as it does on a large piece, I think it came out just fine. I masked all of the trees and the snow, put a small piece of cheese cloth down on the page and began putting color down, mostly darks. Once that was dry I removed the mask and added color to the birch trees and a shadow line on the snow. The other two were a matter of determining what detail to include and what to leave out... the gondolier's face could have been better but over all I like the results.
