W.I.P. A Peek at a "Tweet" Holiday Christmas in July Carol...Joy to the World!

Sketch Sneak Peek!
Over the river and through the I embark on a colorful Pop Art Mini journey of Christmas in July (ok, I'm gettin' an even earlier start...let's pretend not to notice)!
Kicking off the holiday collection is a piece that includes a little birdie that loves to "tweet" sweet and joyful Christmas Carols!  Gotta love a songbird!
Here's the "sketchy" start...from mini-mini to 12"x18" paper canvas.
(If you look closely you might be able to get a sneak peek of some other fun things coming up a bit later!)
A full's naked...where's the color?
"Joy to the World" 
Picking out the palette...ready for holiday pops of color!
I'm thinking red bird, big full moon (seems to always show up somewhere) 5 shades of green for the pine tree branches...ornaments...hmmm...that will be a surprise (because I haven't decided yet.)
Ok, it's back to the drawing board for me!
Wishing you a day of joyful song!

Lovely, as always, but I am happy I don't have to start on Xmas yet! Hugs, Valerie

I so see this as a Christmas card. Red bird is perfect!

What a beautiful little birdie. Can't wait to see it in color though it looks great as is.

Also--just wanted to say thanks so much for the vote on my tee shirt. Much appreciated. :-)
