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?

This is my little drawing of a Red-Eared Turtle, commonly found in the fresh waters of North America. It is inspired by my pet turtles.

It has been a rather cold winter and I made a short video of How to Keep Your Turtle Warm. If you have pet reptiles and an aquarium too, please feel free to check it out: https://youtu.be/yJQiEjiZ5bY

Let me know what you think :)

It is has only recently become cold in my area. And so winter activities come to mind. My sketch shows an ice skater enjoying the start of the winter weather. What is your favorite thing to do during the winter?

It’s a nice long Presidents weekend. A good time to go outside to ski, snowboard or ice skate. What winter activity do you like to do?

To get through this long cold winter, I took up an activity that I thought would be fun. This doodle pretty much sums up my experience so far.

olympic_skiing_by_al_lau

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.
