Description

About the image:

The White Bicycle painting emerged from a moment of inspiration.

I had a meeting with Artzu Gallery in Manchester. I took my camera with the intention of getting some new reference images. I didn’t have to go far.
The gallery was in part of the old Granada TV studios where they used to film Coronation Street. They still do but in their new studios in Salford. The old set is open to tourists and, whilst I’m not a fan, I was curious and walked in that direction.
After leaving the gallery I turned the corner down a dark alley, I say dark but it was the buildings that were dark. The sun was shining brightly and illuminated a silver bike in such a way that it glowed.

I decided to call it White Bicycle.

Why? Because there’s a song by Nazareth called My White Bicycle and it was going trhough my head the whole time I was painting it.
