This color pencil drawing of a moose is spectacular. For sheer
technicality alone, I found this to be an exquisite piece, with the
velvety fur of the moose rendered with near photographic
precision! The shallow depth of field is also rendered very nicely –
with the moose in focus, and the background in soft focus; and
even the cool blue characteristic of powder is drawn beautifully!
Considering the sunlight on the moose and the lightness of the
snow I thought the artist did a great job rendering light (and
texture) in this drawing.
