Artist Santa

This time of year finds me drawing Santas - and this time in using ink!  A little known fact is just how much he loves painting en plein air, and here he is concentrating on the the sweep of that evergreen (one of his favorite trees).  I begin with the sketchy line to create a border, and I begin my composition.  In this case, I charge those same borders with this artist's painting arm and his canvas.  I like taking the important parts outside of the line.  Could I possibly be rebelling against my kindergarten self?  Nah, I'm just letting the ink go where it wants to!  Painting number 1784 in 1784 days.
