children snow sleigh ride by 


This illustration is painted in photoshop to A4 size. The drawing is done first, within the program on one layer. Then, using other layers within photoshop the picture is painted using traditional painting techniques, within. The drawing of the two children on a sleigh, is used as a guide on the top layer, the painting underneath on another layer. I enjoyed the simple composition of the image, and I wanted it to be fresh and open, much like the conditions depicted. The flowing scarfs and jump in progress help to give it a snappy, lively action. The bright, simple colourful sky emphasizes the bold colours of the children and the snowy landscape. It was very cold, with subzero temperatures recorded when this image was produced. The companion piece to this image, showing a boy, girl and snowman can be see elsewhere on this site. Painted in 2010.

    Thanks lacitrouille. It was very enjoyable to do, and virtually painted itself!
