An early oil painting completed using Winsor & Newton Griffin alkyd paints. This shows an alley in Huez Village, half way up the epic Tour de France cycling hill to Alpe d'Huez. Painted in the studio from a photograph, the major technical challenge was making the fine parallel markings on the roofs. To accomplish this I used various combs, and built a rake with pieces of bamboo spaced to produce perspective in the marks.
