Bike ride in Derby Street

Bike ride in Derby Street - Oil on canvas panel (6" x 8") by Benoit Philippe

I painted "Bike ride in Derby Street" from a reference photograph I took in Berkeley (California – USA) in 2008. 

Although the photograph was taken for the house, I found the passing bike to be a good subject. I always try to see how far I can crop a photograph and how many potential painting subjects I could get out of it.

Cool use of reference there! I really like your style, impressionistic, I'm also into that type of stuff. I really like the way the painting turned out, and the good use of lighting, especially on the figure! Nice work!
