Drawn from life with Prismacolor NuPastels on Canson Mi-Teintes 19 x 25-inch paper. 2013.
Christmas is one of my favorite holidays, and the decorations are a big part of that. Simply seeing them makes me feel joyful and brings back a feeling of nostalgia. I had the sudden urge to draw this particular green bow and increase the scale to explore all of its small details. I took the time to capture its shine, the many subtle colors present, small imperfections and its overall form.
