Hi everyone. Happy Wednesday.
I'm back today with a page for Valerie's When One Door Opens Another One Closes challenge at Art Journal Journey. I drew a lot of houses in December, and I decided to draw this house to match the season, so even if you don't have snow or didn't have a white Christmas, it might still feel like winter. I know some of you are having unseasonably warm weather, and so if you don't have winter weather, perhaps you can get your winter fix through this art journal page. (Or count yourself lucky, your choice.)
Luckily, we haven't had this big snowstorm here, at least not yet. There's the possibility of a bit of more snow this coming weekend, but that's still too far off to know for certain at this point.
I started my page by drawing the snow line and then the house. I added the details and some colors. The sky is colored with a Gelato and then smoothed out with some water and a paint brush. I then gave the roof a wash of snow, and I painted the snow with some acrylic paint, using my smooshing brush (a brush in not the best of shape due to previous paint smooshing) to create a bit of texture. I fixed up my black lines be be sure they were sharp. Then I drew in the shovel and added the text.
With this amount of snow, even if you could open the door, I think the front entrance way would fill up with snow as a lot of it would tumble inside. I hope whoever lives in that house has a plow or snowblower though, because they would have awfully sore arms after shoveling that much of the white stuff. Smile.
That's it for me today. Have a great middle of your week!
