A christmas card

Heres the actual card, I spent a little longer on this than I probably should have but had a lot of fun in the process, it was sketched out in pencil first on watercolour paper as you can see in the first picture, I used photo reference for my kids and santas body (myself in a big coat with a cushion down the front!) I then fix the drawing and cover the whole picture in liquitex matte medium ,3 coats of it. I follow that with a wash of blue acrylic (indanthrene and cobalt mix) And then on to painting it in oils using a fairly limited pallette!

I hope you all like and I hope you all have a wonderful christmas thanks for all your interest support and wonderful comments!!
