....something I have never painted before.....
The original photo I was given to work from was just a road race scene.
I decided to start with a neutral background and then add earthy tones to the sketch.
I like leaving some of the sketch showing through in the final work.
The red accents just add a bit of colour to brighten things up!
Although the bike was a challenge to paint (for a non-cyclist), it was quite a fun commission to do.
