Wintry Wishes

There’s nothing like a soft snowfall in the quiet of a wintry forest… Here is a quote from Lewis Carrol that expresses that cozy feeling in the midst of the harshness of winter:

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”

Snow owls are one of my favorite birds of all time and I’ve been wanting the challenge of drawing something that blends so adeptly into its surroundings. Attempting to illustrate snow, or anything white really, is in fact all about color. You have to go into the project with a definite color scheme in mind because those shadows and lights are full of the rainbow! Crayons are perfect for this kind of illustration.

You can purchase a card of this snow owl drawing in my etsy shop! DIGITAL DOWNLOAD – Snow Owl Card
