Clyde Cycleway

Glasgow cyclist on the river Clyde cycle track. Oil on 8″ x 6″ canvas board.

Who remembers all the cyclists that pass by on any day in a city?

I like being able to take an everyday (and quickly forgotten) scene and make it something more permanent (Edward. B. Gordon is a master at this type of painting and an artist who is well worth checking out).

There’s nothing particularly special or unusual about the above cyclist.  I did, however, like how he was framed against the green cycle track and the long shadows that he cast.  So from being a forgotten nobody, Mr Cyclist becomes a painted somebody.  Forever frozen on his bike ride through town thanks to a few strokes of my brush!
