EDM 303- Frozen


Draw something frozen.  Well that would be me.  This past week has been brutally cold here.  Windchills have been down around -35 Celcius which is approaching dangerous level.s  Exposed skin can freeze within a minute.
Time t get out the serious winter gear and not take any chances.  Double layers of everything.  When I bought those shearling lined boots, I thought they were expensive, and it's not often cold enough to wear them more than about 10 times a year.  But this year, they justified themselves.

I wanted to draw in my journal the steps I take to keep warm when outside.  It really is an issue when it's this cold and becomes sort of all-consuming.  Doing anything outside when it's this cold requires time and forethought, even taking out the garbage or walking pets.  And it's way too cold to do fun things outside like skating or tobogganing.  So here are the eights steps required to go outside.

Great sep by step sketches...Keep warm Cordelia (I've now stopped complaining about our 7 degrees last week, can't believe anywhere can be that cold)

great sketches...and a great sense of humor, too. I like the idea and the composition. It looks like you just went on a trip of your own. Ixtapa! Nice! I'm afraid I'm cheating a bit. I already went on my trip, and I'm working from photos...I just didn't have any time to sketch when I was there, but it was amazing!!

Great sketches!!! I love the idea of drawing out each individual piece of clothing, then what it looks like all assembled.
