Snowman for Christmas

I adore doing these canvas pictures.  The Christmas theme is quickly becoming a favorite for me.
I create my background using gesso, Traditions acrylic paints, sprays.  Some brushed on, some stenciled on and some sprayed.
I roughly free hand drawed the snowman and the tree and cut them out of good quality designer paper.  The cheap stuff doesn't hold up as well.  Using liquitex matte medium I glue them down.
 
Then the fun starts again!
I paint and smear using brush and fingers.
To get the edges and the shading I used GELATOS.  LOVE those!!
 


I love my finished piece.  I'll be entering it in the November challenge at Faber Castell.  One of my favorite companies!!
