The Olympics have been a joy to watch, and for me, a great way to practice figural drawing in action. Racing for the finish line, my drawing is of a cross-country skier going for the Gold.

Did you get to see the less popular spectator sports such as Biathlon and Cross-country skiing? And who knew that pushing a rock and sweeping, called Curling, could be such a nail-biting experience?

We are halfway through the Winter Olympics, and it’s been a blast already. My drawing is dedicated to the amazing ability and strength it takes to be an Olympic athlete, such as an alpine skier, under so much pressure. Which sport has you gripped to the edge of your seat?

The Olympics have come to a close, but winter carries on, here in the Northeast. It seems like we’ve had a snowstorm every week, this season. I know it’s not impressive compared to Colorado, but for New York city, it almost breaks records. The total this winter, so far, is 56.6 inches, making for very good conditions in skiing, snowboarding and snowball fights.

This is my drawing of a downhill skiier, inspired by the Olympic competition of the Super-G where speed and perfectly timed snow carving dictate the chance of winning a medal by hudredths of a second.

Autumn will come and go like a distant memory. Before we know it, the winter chill is upon us.

I did this drawing of a skull in perspective, and then color painted it in Photoshop.

My watercolor in celebration of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.  This one is of slalom skiing.  Feel free to visit my store, including prints for sale.

As I’m on a trip, away from my pencils and brushes, the camera will be my source of creativity.  Here are a few photos I took during my ski trip in Mammoth.
