Christmas Common Sketch

This is just a preparatory sketch!

I am thinking of doing some larger paintings of this scene but I like the way this small sketch looks so far.

The effect of light coming through the leaves and the pooling and filtering of light areas through the trees is what I am really trying to illustrate.

I found it difficult to achieve the dark into light effect but hope I will be able to accomplish this in a larger painting, either in oil or acrylic.

Size: 230 x 110mm
Media: Gouache
