3 x 3 Nutcracker


I've been working on this one for the last month (I know, I'm really a slow painter) but the painting phase is done and other than for a few touch ups, I'm ready to assemble this monster and get it framed.
I have mixed feelings about this one. I envisioned each painting to be much darker in mood and I guess my understanding of colour theory and technique hasn't yet reached the level of proficiency that allows me to match what I see in my mind. But it's going to be shown at the show and hopefully some lucky person will have it in their collection.

Let me know what you think.

You have achieved "dark". Before I read your words I thought, "very well painted, but it will scare some kid out of his wits!" I love the colors, personally.

I agree, these are dark alright! It's really unusual and a wonderful painting!
