Acrylic on Deep Box canvas 31cm x 61cm x 3.5cm & bike bits

 

Mont Ventoux in the Provence region of Southern France is a revered climb, which can be taken 3 ways all at least 21km long! Once out of the forest you hit the lunar landscape as you wind towards the weather station. A few kms from the top is the memorial to Tom Simpson who died on Ventoux during a stage of the Tour de France.  This painting reminds me of the epic challenge of riding the great mountains.

 

Acrylic of canvas, with sides painted to emulate the weather station and the rider is made from chains
