'Chestnuts Roasting' is now complete!
I'm very pleased with the overall finish.
At one point the entire artwork looked to bright with all areas vying for attention. So I took a gamble by washing a concoction of muted colours over secondary areas to amplify the main components of the painting.
I originally mentioned this would be my plan of action but there's nothing worse than painting broadly over carefully painted areas with the risk of destroying the entire artwork!
Happily the result brought the scene together :)
Greeting cards and archival prints (29.7 x 21cm) are available at Creation in a Teapot.
