This painting by Peter Doig is called Ski Jacket. If you look carefully at this snowy scene, you can see tiny colourful figures of people skiing dotted about the picture. Peter Doig said that, ‘Ski Jacket … is about the fumbling and awkwardness when learning to ski, how when you start skiing you slip all over the place, yet over a period of time you learn to cope and eventually manage to ski.’
Do you enjoy playing in the snow? Do you find yourself slipping around and falling over like the people in the painting? Do you think the people learning to ski are having fun?
