Original Creation

A Muppets Christmas Carol

mbbrickner 04 Jan 2022

Watercolor and ink on paper | 9”x12” | I’ve been slowly working on this one in pieces since Christmas. This isn’t really my style, but it’s really good practice to help me define lights and darks.

This is a cute painting and fantastic that you tried and it served as exercise. I like dynamics that is added by the tilted land.

The colourmixing is remarkable. Gonzo shines like never before!

I watch this movie every Christmas. I wish this could be submitted into the holiday contest!

Thanks, all!

Sunnylady, I also like the tilt of the background.

Voy Kay, thanks for the color-mixing feedback. I heard from a watercolor podcast that this one artist never premixes watercolors on the palette, but always mixes right on the canvas. Most of the time, I try to do that now in order to create more interest. I suppose BR actually suggests the same thing with oils by encouraging brush mixing as much as possible.

Yes, ironchefmitty, I would have liked to have submitted it for the holiday contest, but I already made a submission!

I really like the ink and watercolor with the Muppets! The medium gives an old school feel to these old school characters. Great job!

Thanks, I really enjoy the line and wash technique. I currently use a brush pen and it gives that nice thick dark line, but I want to experiment more with something just slightly thinner. The thickness of this line almost reminds me of a comic book!

Great fun!...I love this movie
