Pond hockey study. 5x7 oil on panel.

This was based on a drawing I'd done out of my head yesterday. I found a bunch of great video of skaters but at this point felt it unimportant to get the drawing figured out precisely and simply followed my original sketch.
The big curved shape in the background is an undecided thing - Wanted the shape there but didn't decide what it would be. Might end up being a cloud, or a backlit snowy hill.
