The Race

The riders raced through the Yorkshire area of Buttertubs and I started to think about the impact on the small villages up there when this famous cycle race came through the villages. After doing many drawings of the cyclists and the Yorkshire hills I settled for this village composition.

About angela brittain

Each work I create has a search for “rightness” – an attempt to solve complex and often self-imposed compositional problems. They often have a tension below the surface. I work mainly in acrylics on board. People fascinate me but I’m not sure that I made a conscious decision to make people central to my work or if this subject chose me. I have a Diploma in Art and Design and worked for several years as a graphic designer and illustrator before finally returning to my first love of drawing & painting in 2008. I have taught art to children and adults and currently offer one-to-one workshops from my home studio in West Sussex. I have recently been elected as an Associate Member of the Society of Women Artists (SWA) and exhibit in London and the South.
