Fearless Friday, Candy Cane Party

 

Guess what?

It snowed Wednesday night!

 

 

 

 

In Alabama

In November!!!!

😱

 

 

I’m a little freaked out…

Let’s think about something happy…

Like a Candy Cane Party!  🍭

I know we’ve all got turkey on our minds, but it doesn’t hurt to anticipate the December holidays!

 

 

 

 

Simple candy cane shapes in pencil, with the help of a ruler

 

 

 

 

I started with the top candy cane then added more helter skelter underneath

 

 

 

 

I added stripes and holly, just making it up as I went

 

 

 

 

More stripes and details

 

 

 

 

Now for the colors!  I chose 3 shades of green, 3 shades of red and 2 shades of pink, and made a small color swatch palette on the edge of the paper for reference

 

 

 

For the first candy cane I did the colors first

 

 

 

 

and then cleaned up the edges with a black outline

 

 

 

 

But from then on I did the outline first and then filled in the color, which is more comfortable for me

 

 

 

 

As I completed the outlines, I erased the pencil

 

 

 

I chose the colors as I went, keeping the drawing balanced, a little red here, a little green there…

 

 

 

 

And before I knew it, it was done!

 

 

 

 

Who can resist a “Candy Cane Party?”

  9. Jenna, candy canes always look so festive. I thought about how much I loved coloring as a child, I always outlined and then filled in. Such a cute idea, my talented friend!

    Love the vibrant colors and patterns of your candy canes Jenna! We had a cold 5 inches of rain and it felt like it could be snowing. We’d still be shoveling it if that were the case 🙂
