Inktober 2019, Day 11: Snow

I saw this exact scene while walking in Berlin last year and managed to recreate it exactly using photos from The Weather Channel and memory. It was fun trying to create the "flurry" effect of snowflakes in front of car headlights. I think the drawing ended up "sounding quiet," like real snow does. It's my favorite from my Inktober drawings.

Inktober 2019, Day 11, prompt word "Snow." Dip pen and ink, 8 x 11 in. by Ciana Pullen. [Image description: black and white pen drawing of a cityscape and traffic with heavy snowfall. The viewer is positioned at the edge of a sidewalk looking down a tree-lined street. Two cars and a bus drive in the viewer's direction with headlights illuminating snowflakes. The background is blurred out in snowflakes except a few glowing street lamps. The entire composition is made of little groups of lines that mimic the snowflakes.]
