I never used to bother drawing snowy winter scenes while growing up in Ohio. But ever since moving to sunny California in 1996, I have caught myself drawing an awful lot of them. Don't get me wrong, I love the beach, but I also miss the snow really bad. Anyway, drawing snow scenes is tricky when all you've got to work with is black ink. You've got to describe it mostly with the white of the paper. Then you have to be very strategic about just how and where to place your black shapes and lines.
