White Fantasy

Posted by Yelena Shabrova

This is my latest miniature partly inspired by a very cold and snowy winter of 2011-2012 and partly made because right now here in California it’s overly warm and sunny even by local standards. In the process of bringing winter closer to me I found out that a digital canvas can take a fair amount of scraping with x-acto knife which is pretty convenient for putting snow over heavily darkened areas.

The original is available in my Miniatures online gallery for $35.00

Finished a big (at least for me) piece in colored pencil

Winter Dawn - 20

Winter Dawn – 20″ x 16″, colored pencil on Bristol paper

This is my first 20″ x 16″ piece, inspired by the only winter sunrise I ever saw (I am not a morning person) at Donner Pass near Lake Tahoe. My previous artworks never got bigger than 9″ x 12″.
