Oil on canvas, 20" x 30"
Mike is the younger brother of my son-in-law Dave Onions. He owns a ski-chalet in Arosa, Switzerland, and another one in France. He is a ski-instructor.
The background is a distant view of Arosa taken from a photo of daughter Vicky. Apparently the view is from outside a bar. But you could have guessed that if you know Vicky. Arosa is at the base of the peaks, between the division of the trees.
The most difficult part of this painting was getting the smooth gradation of the sky. This was necessary in order to show the clear air. I found the mountains relatively easy.
