Reproduction of the Norman Rockwell painting by the same name, from 1928. Done for the Old Master's Christmas Scene challenge. (Original: http://www.nrm.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/Merrie_Christmas_Couple_web.jpg)

This project was very instructive in showing me the kind of details to focus on for an illustration. Took much longer than I had anticipated. His subtle details are exquisite. It's very easy to abandon this sort of subtlety in favor of the flash and bang of contrast we are used to in more modern illustrations. I'm very glad I've studied this piece.

Please zoom 😊

Thank you so much for the feature Lorna Reid! You rock!
