For my letter paper, I want to make a winter forest kind of motif. I really like forest and I think it would be super cute to send my family letters this holiday season.
I have created a little winter mood board with some forest animals and forest pictures for inspiration. Maybe if I can think of some winter flowers I could include those?
So this is my inspiration for now!
Second due date 15 November
Sketch and experiment.
Unfortunately, I took the picture for the experiment a little late so the light turned out weird but I'll try to upload a new picture for the next session.
I really enjoyed playing around with the colours and tried some of the banners I saw in your example. The whole thing ended up being a little messy, but I had loads of fun.
I just had a little trouble with frost edged leafs which I wanted to try with my composition.
For my composition, I decided to stick to two deer just to keep it a little bit simpler. I think that if I start the deer a little but higher then drawn above they will be beautiful in the composition.
I also wanted to try some frost edged leafs in the left upper corner, but I'll have to figure out how to properly paint that!
22 November Due date
I tried to start is all of very light and let the colour find its way before including the details. I think the leave ended up a little bit too much to the centers.
But I do think that the end result looks very festive.
I think the frost edges turned out okay in the end and adding the snow made it look very winter like.
I had a lot of fun creating this! Even if it didn't entirely turned out the way I envisioned it. (that deer looks a tad bit angrier than I had hoped)
