Christmas is coming…. designing cards


I have been having fun designing Christmas Cards.

Fun time of year! Yes I know it is early… but design, print, market…. it all takes time!

Both are watercolours. “Chatterbox Wren” is a photo of a watercolour I did from a photo i took of a very young Superb Blue Wren making such a racket chirping on the roof. I edited the photo of the painting to add the Santa hat and wording.

The idea for the card below came about a couple of years ago when I was showing watercolour students how to paint a group of simple figures in the style of internationally renowned watercolorist, Robert Wade….. “Bob’s Blobs”. It was near Christmas and I love that red hat as a symbol of Christmas so voila!!!!! I have added red text since doing this little painting
