100 Starts – Number 83

Number 83 of my 100 Starts project

We finally brought the box of Christmas decorations in from the garage and I had totally forgotten about this totally adorable stuffed snowman. He’s looking up, as if he’s letting snowflakes fall on his face. I thought the interesting posture and round shapes would be fun to paint, especially in some dramatic lighting.

I love the colors in this one! There were a lot of colors to mix though which took awhile to create. The light side of the carrot nose gave me trouble, but once I got it close and went ahead and painted it in, it worked great next to the shadow side. I wish the temperature of the shadow family of the snowman’s body was cooler and a little lighter, but otherwise I’m super happy with this start.

Now that I’m in the home stretch I wanted to start posting these daily. The previous studies can be found here.
