This is the project I have been working on during my commute since Monday. I did have to spend some time in the evenings sketching out areas to work on so I wouldn't have to count. This is how I finished up the last santa ornie. It's going much faster too.
I like the color of this one better--I love the color of the hat, but now that I've started filling in the body (I did this morning) I don't think there's enough contrast between the swirls and the background color.
