It feels strange doing wintry drawing in the middle of summer. This is Snegurochka, a character from Russian folklore. She is the child of Winter and Spring, and is given to childless human parents who look after her until she falls in love, and melts. Cheerful stuff. I wonder if she inspired Carol Anne Duffy’s the duke of fire and the duchess of ice?
