Santa #1

Santa #1/ oil on gesso board/ 7 x 5/ SOLD
I have started my Santas for 2014. This is the first.
I love Santas who wear the gold-rimmed glasses.
I also love to see "who" appears from the initial block in of these. I find the dull grey or grey-grew backgrounds make the red of the Santas appear bright, cold and crisp. Painting bearded men is definitely easier than painting faces without facial hair.
