Tour De France

This is more of a prep piece than anything because I’ve got a commission on for a Tour de France poster. I wanted to experiment with giving the work a more traditionally painted look by adding texture and inconsistencies in the application of lines and paint. If I’m honest I’m really happy with how this turned out. The narrow use of colour is always something I try to stick to these days because it makes the composition more harmonious. The bold colours and and limited value (tone) range are also a focus now and tend to be indicative of my current style. The typography is my own making, but is heavily based around the Art Deco aesthetic.

Cheers

Matt
