Fricktaler Highland Games

4. Fricktaler Highlandgames

I decided to give myself a new artistic challenge on Sunday, and attended the Highlandgames in Wallbach to try and capture some of the events on paper. Having painted ballet dancers moving for about 5 years now, I thought some heavy duty male action would be an interesting antidote. However, how does one capture WEIGHT in a painting? I can do lightness of foot, music, but HEAVY was a new one. Here are some of the results (of course, should you wish to buy one, they are all on sale and I would be delighted to give a painting a happy home)
