Artist's description:

I usually paint fur and feathers so this was a nice change, and a challenge! I have taken an antique map from my collection, enlarged, brightened and scanned it and printed it onto archival paper. This I then prepared as a painting ground and painted the racing bike directly onto this using artist quality acrylic paints and inks. I have kept the main ridges of the Alps in view by using a composition that has the bicycle riding into the painting from the right hand side. I love using old items to create contemporary artworks! This would make a great gift for a cycling enthusiast. I have mounted the painting in a white mount to enhance the creamy tones of the map and it will be presented in a sealed clear cello display bag, ready to gift.
The mount is a standard 40cm x 50cm so framing will be straightforward.
Please note the colours of the artwork may vary slightly from pc to pc, and therefore from the actual painting, but not enough to make a huge difference.
Thanks for looking!!
