Went for a long bike ride in the countryside and then tried to paint from memory.

The white shirt and black hair and pants really contrasts the other earth tones and brings it to life. Great work.

Thanks! Sadly this doesn't do the landscape justice. I live in the Alentejo in Portugal, I followed a public path for about 25 km and then turned back (so close to 50 km in total, about 4 hours of cycling), most of it was huge rolling hills with occasional villas, I even brought some gouache stuff so I could paint something while out there but I knew that trying to paint the beauty would corrupt the experience somehow so I just tried to create a mental painting of it in my head and saved it for later. This is basically that mental image, although I feel like trying again in the future to make it better!
