This is the fourth of this year’s Copic-coloured Christmas cards and this one is based on the fourth lesson in the Winter Storybook class from Sandy Allnock over on Art-Classes.
I really like the graphic mountain range, along with the snowstorm effect. This was definitely one that needed a reference image to work from — I am terrible at visualising anything other than simple, almost primitive, shapes when it comes to, well, most things to be honest, but mountains and trees and the like in particular. Google Images is definitely my friend. I found a photo of a mountain range and simplified the shapes to come up with this design.
