Winter walks and sketches

Posted by Julia Ogden on

Like most people in my home town of Hebden Bridge I have been enjoying the snow. The valley looks so beautiful under white blankets and an array of blues.
On wintery walks I have been taking lots of photographs and just started getting into a routine of choosing one everyday to draw; blocking in the shadows with watercolour to be sketched on later. It has felt a lovely process and the drawings have been quite free and feel less overworked..
Can you tell I fell in love with the Texel sheep?
A lot of these drawings are from a lovely walk I had on my birthday. The snow was flurrying around like we were in a giant snow globe. I blew my birthday candle out in the magic. 
I hope you find some magic in the countryside in a hard month x
