Alaskan Drawing "Winter Light"

The first entry in our Alaskan Drawing Series Close-up is "Winter Light", one of the first variants in the series. It really captures the mood of the cold winter days in Anchorage.

Alaskan Drawing "Winter Light", by Yolanda del Riego.

Winters in Anchorage are pretty cold; the average temperatures range between -3°C (26°F) and -12°C (8°F). The days are also short; the sun doesn't rise until around 10am and it's dark by 4pm. During the few hours of daylight, the sky often has an ice-cold aqua tinge to it, as captured in this photo.
