Class project: Copy of Fealing Lin's "Morning Cyclist"

Our class assignment today was to reproduce "Morning Cyclist" by artist Fealing Lin.

Here is a sequence of my work on the subject today:

Yes, I'm painting it upside down :) so the paint runs the way I want it to, and not down into the space for the buildings.

Buildings

sunny edges of buildings

First I tipped the edges where the buildings are reflecting the rising sun.

After the yellow dried, I painted in the building area. Underneath I had a beautiful layer of tourquoise, but forgot to capture it. You can still see it in part, mainly the rider's head and shoulders. It adds to the glazing over the buildings quite a bit.

The final version, which I'm quite happy with.

My utmost thanks to Ms. Lin for providing such a stunning inspiration to play with.

That's beautiful! I love the way you worked so delicately with colors and light, and yet made it so vibrant.
