Just back from a skiing holiday, and I want to tackle some more skiing pictures. I did some quite fun oil studies 5 years ago. These skiers are taken from my sketchbook from Switzerland back then.
This year I was less conscientious about working whilst on holiday. Although I enjoy skiing, the monochromatic world of snow trees and rocks can get strangely claustrophobic, despite the vastness of the landscape, so it is always a wonderful moment, even after a brilliant holiday, when you see the extraordinary greenness of a patch of spring grass for first time after coming down from the mountains.
