Sketch Diary for this Painting

10x20 inches, watercolors and ink on illustration board. 

Original Painting: Available framed for $800! (My Patreon patrons get a special discount and exclusive wallpapers of this piece.;)) Reserved for my mom!  Sorry guys. The mom has laid claim. XD

The Lady of December bears the white Narcissus and dons the stone of Turquoise.  The white Narcissus celebrates fertility and resurrection while the Turquoise shall bring her prosperity and good fortune.
I'm happy to present the first of my upcoming "Ladies of the Months" series!  Each lady will represent the birthstone and flowers for each month.  I've decided to reboot this series in traditional media, instead (it began in digital).  The inking and watercolor painting are far easier and more enjoyable for me to do by hand, believe it or not!

This series is also my homage to Alphonse Mucha, who inspires me on a daily basis.  I drew a lot of inspiration in particular from his Precious Stones series.

The Lady of December represents the birthstone of Turquoise and the white Narcissus flower.  I also chose to incorporate the themes of the Saint Lucia candle crown and holly as homage to the seasonal elements of December that I enjoy.

Thanks, Cait! I'm excited as well! I get to play dress up with the rest of the Ladies, which is a nice throwback to my fond memories of playing fashion designer as a kid. It's going to be so fun!
