In my above painting, Hockey Speed, I wanted to convey the movement and speed of the hockey player. I used cross contour lines that are apparent at the skates. I also blurred and smudged the edges of the figure’s shape and the form’s light. Movement was also achieved by the diagonal angle of the figure. In this painting my background is abstract. The focal point is the glove. The warm light comes from the left side.
This is a digital painting using mainly traditional oil painting techniques and a painterly approach. I used virtual brushes and paints on coarse cotton canvas (Corel Painter 12 and Intuos5 drawing pen and tablet).
