A Christmas stocking
'Christmas Stocking' is my latest piece of Christmas artwork. This adorable illustration is hand-drawn using the finest pencil and painted with delicate, layered watercolours on fine art paper with a super soft grain.
The cool, minimalist colour palette reminds me of the many chilly Christmases I spent in the UK before I migrated to the sunny shores of Australia.
I hope that when people look at this painting they're reminded of the child-like wonder and excitement of Christmas.
'Christmas Stocking' is available on a range of stationery, prints, clothing and merchandise in Victoria's shop.
