Sometimes the brightest colors aren’t what works – but a small selection of colors, whether desaturated by nature or desaturated by greys, will create a harmony in your art that you didn’t expect! And, of course…snow.

Stop giving me a heart attack please Sandy ! Gorgeous scene, there are lampposts in woods or animals would have no where to gather for caroling at Christmas or being spooky at halloween. Really do love the look & understand the why but haven’t got my big girl knickers on yet, sorry.lol.
This is so amazing! You are such a great teacher!! I remember seeing that person comment on reindeer colours! Being an Australian we don’t see a lot of deer so I would have no idea what colour they should be!
Cute stamp set too!
Wow Sandy, in the beginning of the video I thought omg what is she doing? It became darker and duller and I can’t even say where the turning point was, but it turns out awesome. You are absolute right when you say that white only pops when you put something around it so it can pop. Thank you so much for this great tutorial.
Sweet little critters – and a cool take on the usual Christmas scene. Thanks for all the great tips on night-time coloring – or should I say “desaturating”!
