Skier Iphone Case
Hanne Lore Koehler
Painting - Watercolor
This Olympic aerial skier is a watercolor painting based on Canadian Winter Olympic competitors. The original painting (also in this gallery) has been modified to suit the iPhone case.
With controled splashes of watercolor, as far as the athlete is in control of his jump, I have attempted to capture in this painting the excitement and adrenaline rush felt by the skier during this extreme aerial maneuver. I must put myself in the skier's frame of mind, recreating the action on canvas with similar "throw caution to the wind" attitude. The paint that seems to be splashed recklessly about is actually under my control in that I can protect areas where I do not want the splashes to land; however, where they do land, they react with the canvas freely and without restriction. It is as much of a rush for me to paint in this way as it is for a skier to perform such extreme maneuvers. I like to think of it as "extreme painting" - exciting, exhilarating, daring - not always successful but, when it is, I am ecstatic!
