Winter Illustrations

Winter Illustrations - student project

What a beautiful class! Thank you Olga for putting so much thought in those lovely cards. I had a wonderful time painting these illustrations. 

It was really fun to create these wintery scenes - specially because here in Brazil we're entering summer in the next few days :D 

I used a thinner canson paper this time, and that gave me a bit of trouble... But I'm happy with the final results and I'm planning to give two of them as christmas cards this year.

I decided to make the paintings circular because I wanted smaller cards. Also, I added a bit of shimmer to them with my acrylic paints (I hope you can see it in the pictures).

For the little fox in the winter forest and the cat in the wrapping desk, I followed quick youtube tutorials.
