Halfway there

So it’s definitely heading towards that time of the year, and what says Christmas better than Mary&baby riding a plesiosaur?*

Well, a certain saboteur of all my life’s ambitions says Santa Claus, on the basis that this would simplify my colour scheme a thousandfold so that I might actually be able to finish the wretched thing, rather than having to post aborted attempts and spending fruitless hours upon hours on a single doodle. But my heart is set on Mary, so somehow I must find a way to reconcile all the Mary-blue with the Christmas-red-and -green; or decide if a red-and-green Mary would still be recognisable as such; or some other solution that evades me just now. And if I draw Santa riding a plesiosaur after this, I still maintain Mary is better. So there.

 

*Yes yes, just like Hildgeard of Bingen doing the same means Thanksgiving, I have shamelessly recycled from a previous doodle, but not many people know her and I really like this image! In principle. When the colours work.
