This piece was done on site in a small Italian village. While there with a small group of drawing students, we went out at night to see what captured us. The motorbike is a ubiquitous way to get around, so it seemed like the perfect subject, in this narrow, dimly lit alleyway.
I'll ship this flat and well protected, so you can mat and or frame it as you like.
