19-time ‘peaks finisher Simon Scarsbrook has contributed a number of things here over the years. Forced out of this year’s event by injury, the veteran has spent his time well on an original artwork inspired in part by the race’s own logo
My 20th race will have to wait: http://scarsbrook-art.com/2016/06/20/bit-of-a-break/ Rather than training, I have concentrated on producing a themed print.
I have always liked the logo/image that the race uses, and I have tried to echo that in my composition. As ever I have been particular to use my own reference, but have also studied lots of race photos (not really a chore!). I worked in black and white, pencil and watercolour, scanning in the various elements and applying colour and textures within Photoshop.
