WIP 2... Setting the scene

Its such fun setting the scene for a painting, creating the atmosphere for the main characters. My husband says the curtains in this painting remind him of his Grandma. The knitting and knitted tea cozy certainly remind me of my Nan. I had to include a jammy biscuit too as both my grandparents loved them.

I wanted to create that feeling of light and warmth with a very homey touch for my new bears. Next I get the fun of bringing them to life but not until I have helped out Santa's elves and done some much needed wrapping. I probably won't get chance to post again until after christmas so to all that celebrate it. Have a wonderful time.
