|"Power to the Trail" mixed media, 7" x 11"|
Because I live in such a large biking community, I've always wanted to do something with bikers but could never pull it off. I think bikes in general are hard to paint with their wheels and mechanisms.
So the last time we went for a mountain bike ride, I took my camera to try to take reference pictures again. It was at the end of the day and the lighting was beautiful. I kept chasing the light coming through the trees and made my husband pull ahead of me into the light to take pictures. I kind of like this "power to the trail" sign he gave me as he rode ahead.
With this new technique I just learned, I finally painted a bike painting I like.
Once again, I am linking up with Studio JRU and all of you lovely Sneak Peek Talents!
