WIP Skating

11 x 14 Work in Progress
Original Oil Painting
Well it is 23 degrees to warmer than most of our days in the summer and while winter seems far off I decided to do a skating painting. I took this photo last year at our skating pond in Calgary, and it brought back such memories of my kids when they were learning how to skate. I can remember bring a little chair for them to push.

I decided to plan this with a chalk drawing first and am approaching it in the method I'm most comfortable - that is by working outward from a single area. I'll post my updates as I progress.
