December challenge

We know that some of you have been anxious to see what the December art challenge is. We hope you like it!
Glossy surfaces can seem intimidating to paint if you are over-thinking.
Hint: Try focusing on blocks of color rather than the objects themselves. Make sure your dark colors are applied first while focusing on value and avoid using black. Adding your light (or highlights) in the final stages is sure to create a pop effect. You will see the illusion of foil coming to life when you dab your highlights in.

This is your painting so feel free to crop it, add something to it, etc.

Have fun and have a great holiday!
We are looking forward to your contributions.

We'd love to hear from you whether it's praise or critique. Sometimes it's a simple comment that keeps us going as painters!
