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.
