Beyond the World (Sold)

Oil on canvas  


Pictured here is the original, but prints are available here

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.
