Ya Never Forget-Figurative

Close ups

Oil on 6x6 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Bonnie was the hostess who supplied a lot of great reference photos!
The bike rider was my choice because I was intrigued by the cast shadow and the aging rider. I tried to keep it simple by just going for color and painterly strokes. It was really an enjoyable ride...
