Santa Watercolor Portrait Demonstration


Ok, so last week I started a Santa demonstration and ended up painting the inspiration image of a man with a red beard. This week I followed my lesson plan and modified the image to be more Santa-like. 
Everyone in class was in the best mood.... I think Santa makes us happy.
