The famous Giro d`Italia is heading this way, this week. I don`t really know why they are doing the race in N. Ireland, or whether it`s just a "stage" as they call them in the Tour de France? Any cycling enthusiasts out there, please inform me! Anyway, this is my contribution to a special themed exhibition that Gallery 1608, Bushmills, are having in honour of the famous Italian race, which will pass their door! OK, so I opted to bypass the pink bike, (somewhat subdued blues and greens seem to be my subconscious preferred palette these days, but in reality, a bright pink bicycle might be harder to fit in with most people`s interior decor?)
Admittedly, she doesn`t look like she would win the race, but hopefully she looks like she has a destination in mind anyway, while enjoying the wind in her face. And as for a goose: why not? I love them. Sketch them at every opportunity.
Bright and breezy.
I am pondering on the title. A few ideas mulling around in my crazy head, but wouldn`t mind some ideas from others. Any suggestions folks?
