(Above) The Cyclist
15.5cm x 18cm
Mixed media on paper.
This painting was developed from a study (below) that I produced with the stylus and Handwriting App of my Sony Reader after a thumbnail photograph that I found on the Internet of a young Eddy Merckx wearing the pink jersey. I've changed the writing on the jersey to make a more generic image.
After doing this painting I found myself thinking again about the work of the German Expressionist, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner.
