These are wonderful references Tuscanny! Just need the time to paint but one in particular I find irresistible so must make an effort. Thank you.

Thanks for starting this month's challenge Christel. I might add some more ref photos if that is ok.

Lovely! Clever idea to "mash up" the two photos, as Tali mentions.

Well done Christel!. Perfect combination of the two pics, and actually works really well. The color of the elk is similar to sky color. Helps balance it out.

Re: December Oil pastels chat and challenge

That is such a good idea and so well painted. It gives the atmosphere of the quietness of snow and the twilight darkness too.

Re: December Oil pastels chat and challenge

Another reference, if I may. From Basel, Switzerland.
I traveled there for a few days last month. This way I can motivate myself to draw it..
