I painted the two active boys as the subjects of an action watercolor portrait with detailed brush strokes to define their facial features clearly. The flying snow in the background was painted in an impressionistic style using various watercolor techniques including wet-on-wet dropping and splattering of paint and water and color absorption using salt crystals. I tried to portray the fun, exhilarating and challenging aspect of this exciting sport.
There are many competitive events including slopestyle, the half-pipe, and Snowboard Cross which are run in the Olympics but these boys are just out to have fun! See the fantasy storybook illustration version of this image called Snowboard Super Heroes also in this gallery.
