Snjeguročka’s portrait done in guache and coloured pencil.
OK, London is swamped with bicycles and, despite not having proper bicycle lanes and everything being on the “wrong” side of the road, it really makes me want to get “out there” and get me one of those shiny two-wheelers. Also, in case you hadn’t noticed, bikes are a wonderful thing to sketch. Even in the rain! (Although my feet did not appreciate the gesture.)
I tried doing one as a linocut later on but didn’t have the time to properly finish it. The result is this chaotic, stained thing. It has soul, I guess. Or something. Whichever bicycles usually have. Despite my deep appreciation, I’m not all that privy to their little world.
