"Ride as much or as little, or as long or as short as you feel. But ride." - Eddy Merckx
To date, this is now my favourite commission I've ever had the pleasure
of painting...and it definitely ranks in the top five of my favourites
pieces of all time. This is painted on a legitimate Tour de France sign
when it started in England this year. I also love the fact the arrow is
pointing rightwards and overall has this wide landscape proportion I'm
drawn to painting so often. Most of the kits were from this year's tour,
whilst a couple of others reference other people and incidents.
You can find more photos of the piece, and the process, below.
