  • Oil stick on board, 305 x 406 mm
A single work painted using Sennelier oil sticks on a board prepared for oil paints. This depicts a cyclist nearing the top of the exhausting climb of Alpe d'Huez, during a race, and was taken from a photo. Although this is larger than most of my oil pastels, it proved very fiddly to paint the fine detail of the bicycle, for which I used various small metal tools.
