Cycle Race over Putney Bridge

By Caroline S

Cycle Race over Putney Bridge

On a rainy day in summer 2015, the streets of Putney were lit up by the dynamic snakes of colourful cycling jerseys as this high powered cycle race powered through London. The reflections on the wet tarmac were very Pissarro!
I have always loved this view with the two Church Towers in conversation over the river and the bridge curving between the two.
I stood in the rain with my tiny purse-sized sketchbook
and jotted down the scene with a biro.
Thank you to all those cyclists and volunteers at the barriers for making Putney so brilliant in the grey rain.

I paint Liquid Acylics on art paper mostly. This I currently find is the best way for me to translate into 2D the dynamic energy I feel and see all around.
