For my holiday posts, I really enjoy using the cut paper method to add visual interest to my sketches. As you can see here, the sketches sometimes start off very basic. This is just to give me an idea of where or how to place the paper. I can edit it more when I cut the colored paper later.
I like using the cut paper method for the holiday images because they remind me of when I was younger and I’d read a lot of story books where the pictures were made using cut paper. It was interesting to look at all the different colors and textures paper can give you.
I thought making a Christmas tree would be a fun idea because on a tree, I can use different paper to make the tree itself, the ornaments, the garland, etc.
