How to Draw Snow and Ice

By December 10, 2008

Follow me on:

Here in Australia, we're getting a bit of summer rain - too late to help the farmers, unfortunately - but hopefully enough to dampen down the bushfire risk. So I rather envy Northern readers with their lovely Christmassy snow and dark evenings by a warm fire. (Though I'm glad I don't have to shovel the stuff, or pay those heating bills....). Maybe you're sick of winter already, but if not, you might like some tips on how to draw snow and ice. For those of us unable to get outdoors - or in warmer climes - Drawing/Sketching Forum member Starrpoint* has kindly provided some winter scene reference photos.

oh, don’t envy us in the North, Helen, the cold wind, grey skies and lack of sunshine are something I could do without. I love the sun, warm breezes and the light. But the recent misty and frosty weather here has provided us with some beautiful subjects to photograph.

I envy the winter too. I live in a desert, so rarely see snow. Makes this explanation even better…it allows someone who doesn’t get to see snow often to learn a little more about how to draw it and decorate their house with winter scenes!
