Session #254, Work #250

I love asking my wife to pick something for me to paint because I know she will pick something random that I would never pick, and almost always end in me being challenged by the subject matter.Tonight was no different, she picked a wonderful gift given to her by a friend in Washington D.C. If I felt like spending longer on this painting I would have dove deep into describing the texture of the stocking, but I settled for focus on drawing, value and color.
