A commission of a glorious scene, riding a chair lift through the mountains. Skiing and the mountains are a big love of mine so when this client requested this painting, I was thrilled. 

Translating the movement from the photography into paint was done using fat and thin brushes with washes and thick marks. 

Viewing this painting you can feel the journey through the wind and blue sky. 

Each mark represents a movement from ski or snowboard tracks. 

It's wonderful to do a piece that incorporated tight technical and abstract representational painting.
