Santa Cruz – Day 183

So here is my second Santa Claus. The only real change was the shading on his beard, and I changed it to a dark gray. I’ve been bouncing back and forth from tans and grays on the shadows. The tans have a very classic look and the grays can sometimes be more dramatic. So… I like to see which works best for the piece. I put Santa on this geometric board with circles on it. The color pattern was dead on and I liked the minimal play off the pompom on his hat. I really dig both of the Santa Pieces. I hope they get me bonus points when December 25 rolls around!
