I love winter, I love snow and I love winter sports. A bit of a pity considering that I am living in a desert, or at least close to a desert.
I have done some winter sport paintings uring my artist career, in different styles and techniques, on paper and canvas, and even some digital ones. My favourite technique though is the free one, where I get my inspiration from a wild background painted in gouache or acrylics, the result of some natural organic process. Then the characters suddenly appear, more or less suddenly, as the result of some fantasy effort.
It can be very challenging, and sometimes it does not work at all, nothing happens. But when it works, I do love what is coming out of that creative process, it always looks very personal and free.
