My family was lucky enough to see moose in Yellowstone
I wanted this ornament to feel magical. I painted layers of trees in shades of gold first. The moose was painted in gold with a bottle applicator. I don't sketch the body shape first, as you'll see in the video. I freehand the shape and adjust it to make it just right. That way each moose is slightly different, and unique.
