There are lots of cycles, skateboards and electric scooters in Bordeaux. I think they help make the city centre a surprisingly quiet and pleasant place. Anyway, this painting is situated on a tram line not far from the big theatre.
For these small painting I use oil paint on primed hardboard. In this particular case, I scrubbed in the underpainting very thinly and even the subsequent layers were thinly applied. I was using fairly soft synthetic brushes, which I don’t normally like, but they seemed to work well in this case. The paint went on very nicely, with barely any dilutant. A nice surprise!
