Candy Cane - a Christmas still life

12x9 watercolor on Strathmore 140 lb cold press paper, drawn today using Magic Pencil (colored pencil) then quickly laying in wet mixtures of greens using Prussian blue and UB plus arylide yellow and quinacridone gold. I also used undersea green by Daniel Smith. Candy canes are the cheapest decoration you can find probably but always enjoy seeing their fresh red and white swirls on a green tree.
Merry Christmas, everybody! Feliz Navidad!
