I continue to create the Ski A-Z book, spurred on by the upcoming winter season, here are the latest illustrations…
‘L’ for Lunches
A long lunch after a great morning skiing is a delight in the spring months. The cool morning air is replaced with the sun, which bathes and warms away any winter blues from long winter nights of the previous months. A leisurely lunch on the mountain restaurant terrace is ideally followed by time reclining in a deck chair.
But not every day is sunny with blue skies, the snow has to fall sometimes (preferably at night).
This illustration represents the lunch breaks on colder days, maybe even in a whiteout or blustery weather.
Warming up on a cold snowy day in the refuge of a mountain restaurant is like finding a safe harbour in a storm.
This illustration is based on a memory of a very cold day when I was a kid. My Dad helped me to get warm, which seemed to take a long time as I’d been lost for an hour.
The intention is to illustrate the feeling, not a likenesses to anyone in particular.
Once warmed up and recharged there’s chance for more fun in the snow, and if it’s accumulated a chance to ski deep snow.
Although I’ve created illustrations for the letter ‘F’ (see the illustrations here) I kept feeling called to represent family ski days – so here is the content I’ve created…
‘F’ for Family
Skiing is a sport that all ages can do together. Meaning it’s great fun family time. I treasure many memories of skiing together as a family, from being a child, to leading the children and instructing, and now letting them lead when it’s safe for them to pick their own path. This one is inspired by a fab three generation ski day in Meribel, France.
