Winter moon



Winter moon" - finished. I find that I have captured the mood I wanted; the 2 lynx' playing under the moon, in a cold, but yet friendly, snowy landscape. I think it looks like an illustration for a childrens book or a fable.
I had to find a way to draw "not too realistic", quite a challenge for me 

It doesn't show up very well, but most of the snowy hills have a light blue color and dots added for interest. The foreground and some of the left hill are left with no coloring.
Colored pencil on Strathmore bristol paper.
