Beyond the World (Sold)
Oil on canvas
A call for entries on the theme 'Bike' brought to mind a piece painted some years ago of a cyclist against a curved horizon.
A few lines sketched on paper immediately felt promising and I made a small oil sketch of it. Sold within days and with more interest shown, I soon began work on the much larger canvas seen here. But as I've found before, what works small is often quite different enlarged. The empty space below the cyclist was somehow problematic, and it took a few dead ends before I found the solution - a textural suggestion of clouds to create depth.
This is the original, with canvas pulled over 6mm marine ply, so is ready to hang as is, but can also be stripped for shipping in a tube
