Absolute class set of pictures from Le Tour. Hope this lot get an appropriate exhibition. You consistently capture the speed, movement and strain that the event engenders in the competitors. Just to be a little controversial - Come on Bradley!

Leslie Sealey said...

That soft, hazy background really gives a sense of depth to the painting. You realize how suddenly the mountain drops off at the edge of the road!

I just wanted to let you know about a new forum for artists as well as musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers, http://www.PutItOn.com. As an artist I think that the mission is really great. The site gives you a free gigabyte of space for portfolio, there is no commission taken for sales, audio and visual works can been streamed in their entirety, you can create live personal broadcasts for your followers, and anything you write will be translated into 10 languages. So check it out!
