Scott's Follis - Print Experiment
Charcoal, Lithograph on paper various dimensions

Cycles Follis, founded in 1903 and previously based in 10, rue Danton, Lyon, France, was a long-established artisan manufacturer in the French bicycle industry. This cute little road bike fits me perfect! Scott was generous to loan it to me to paint. It is great to paint a vintage road bike with such cool and interesting details especially the derailliers.

I'm working out a printmaking workflow I hope will become a regular part of my process. It starts with a work in progress. I take a photo, print, trace , litho and have a print i can work on to work through my design thoughts.
