Virtual Sketch Date

This is my first entry on Virtual Sketch Date.. a monthly challenge..Each month a new reference image is posted and all are invited to paint,draw or sketch. We post our entry on our blog and submit the link.. This month's snow scene can be seen here....

Thank you Rose,Jeanette and Stacy for this wonderful platform. I am sure it will help me on my creative journey and allow me to share my work.

This was done on Canson 160grm coffee paper using Neocolor I crayons {Caran D'Ache)

Thank you Sheila,Sherry and Kathleen for taking a look and commenting. I am new to VSD and greatly appreciate any feed back... after viewing all the beautiful works I feel I should try to get out of "BOX" more!!!
Happy Holidays to ALL

Beautiful work! It does have a vintage photograph look but with a golden glow.

I like your limited color scheme - it ties the scene together very well and also makes it look very welcoming.

Nice. I like the toned paper show at the edges. It's vintage.

I like the homey little house on the prairie of this painting. Looks very vintage.
