This adorable nutcracker has a European flair, with the almost mime like features. The red ball nose and the rosy red cheeks certainly have a clown like feel to them! I love the serious expression to the face, and the applied red buttons to the front of the coat! The little legs are so shapely - which is not the norm of stick straight legs on most nutcrackers! The colors work so well together here - it has been one of my favorites to paint! This painting makes 1448 in 1448 days.
