A few years ago, I was going through an intense Art Nouveau kick, brought on by the work of Alphonse Mucha. At one point in his career, he did a series of four paintings/prints based on each of the four seasons (Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter).
Inspired by this, I came up with my own versions of the seasons that I intended to (at some point) paint. After letting the sketches collect dust for what seemed like forever and never really getting any closer to painting them, I finally decided to convert them into digital illustrations (something I knew I could accomplish without too much of a headache).
“Winter” is the first of these.
