Art journal page 76 “Life is like riding a bicycle”

riding a bike

Mixed media acrylic painting. I was experimenting with the color combination. Once I clipped from the magazine a little piece of the painting (partial image of the bicycles) with the attractive color palette: Lemon yellow-Orange (Cadmium Red light hue)-Navy blue. There are Black and White paints in the mix of these colors, too. I collaged the magazine clipping to my background and painted the rest of the bicycles’ shapes. Then I painted the rest of the piece to illustrate the inspirational quote from A. Einstein: “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep balance, you must keep moving”.
