Do you like to work with watercolors? Perfect! Oils? Perfect again! In fact, the choice of medium is totally up to you. It is not limited to pencil, mixed media, or even digital illustration if that what you enjoy.
This year, the theme is geared toward the December holidays and seasonal greetings, so there is plenty of room to use your imagination. The website invites you to create “winter or mountain landscapes, Christmas themed still life such as ornaments, animals or wildlife in the snow, and Santa portraits.” Sounds like a lot of fun!
