Checking the Jester
Acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas, 4x4
I love the vintage feel of painting this Santa in sepia! I mix red oxide and ivory black to get this rich color, and basically work the darks. I try to not use white at all, except for a little light on the rim of his glasses. I love this technique, and I've already primed 6 more gallery wraps for more vintage Santas! By the way, this is the Santa I found on Main Street over the weekend. Little did he know I would be memorializing him in paint, again and again! This painting makes 1419 in 1419 days.
