Day 4 Slate - X-Country Skiing
11x14" Acrylic on slate
This is inspired by a photo posted by Penny Kipley from a Cross Country Ski day, I believe in Colorado. I painted it on slate, as I am doing this entire month for the 30 in 30 challenge sponsored by Leslie Saeta. I loved the original photo which told a story and had all the lovely elements of value contrast between the snow and trees, and the zooming distance implied by the trail. I, of course, used it as inspiration and then did what I thought was necessary to make it a fun painting. Photography and painting are two different art forms and need to be respected as such. Thank you Penny!
