There is no Christmas without a Poinsettia! This plant is beautiful and is one of the Christmas flowers the deep red of the traditional flower is a wonderful color. I guess at this time of the year this plant is used to decorate indoor and outdoor pretty much everywhere around the world! I have been drawing poinsettia since I was a child, creating hand drawing Christmas cards for my sweet mom and family! No matter if is a real plant a drawing or anything that represent this red flower, just the presence in the house enhance the feeling of the holidays.

Details about my watercolors:
 watercolors are outlined with black and white ink pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle 12 demi-godets half-pans travel metal box  Ink pens used  Pigma Micron Black ink #02, white Uni-ball Signo gel pen and a black ink  Pilot Prera fountain pen fine nib .  I also used a Pentel Pocket Brush I painted on a small 3.5 x 5.5 inches mixed media sketchbook.
