Avercamp probably painted in his studio on the basis of sketches he had made in the winter.
Avercamp is famous abroad for its winter landscapes. This often includes many people who are skating, for example. The predilection for this subject probably arose from his youth, in which he always skated with his parents. Because he did not hear anything, he lived in his own world and always dreamed of the wonderful time on the ice. He was happy there. The last quarter of the 16th century, in which Avercamp was born, was one of the coldest periods of the small ice age.
