Coloring a print of a bw/color.
This one came out looking a bit green in the tree. Gives me an idea. What if I do 2 blocks, one with just the tree in green, one w/o the tree in bw with color tapped in?
Still fighting with the concept of color when my affinity is for bw.
I can do a foreground and a background block. Foreground is everything but tree and table. Background is table (red?) and tree (green). BW foreground gets tapped in color.

B&W with red ornaments and candy cane and brown gingerbread castle. Rest is simply b&w, in spite of the blue cast. Table might have wooden texture. Color tapped in.
Another idea: strictly b&w with white areas to be water-colored afterward. (Actually the original idea.)

Zeroing in on the composition and the elements. A couple pencil sketches w/ crayon.
Another possible element is a xmasy trim around the plate ~ holly and berries.
Can't seem to stop messing.
This is with a yellow trim on the plate and a yellow xmas ball.
