Basically.... a lot of holly!

Bottom row: Laser cut plywood holly wreath in process of being coloured using Kuretake watercolour pens, (Non coloured version available to buy in my Etsy store). Large watercolour holly leaves on blue background (experimenting with paper format sizes). Sketch idea for fabric pattern, retro skiers, mountains and pine trees (too late for this Christmas!).
