See the journey to a Happy & Festive Chinese New Year
Since Chinese New Year is coming up soon, I decided to make a Zodiac/Animal inspired watercolor painting centered around the celebrations and festivities that occurs during this time.
Check out the images below to see the work in progress to make this painting happen.

This picture's color is a bit off since I finally finished by night time and was using the light bulbs as a source of light but finally finished it. Over, it took too long and many days.
Basing it off of my progress pictures, I started in mid December and didn't finish until middle of January working a little bit each night.
