Shaun Palmer - Proposal for a photorealist painting
Shaun Palmer – Proposal for a photorealist painting

Shaun Palmer was a wildman

I want to paint this low-res image taken from the internet as it is an image of a wildman with his bicycle. This was in all the mountain bike magazines back in the day and I believe it is one of the most iconic images of my era. It shows a confident young man with his weapon of choice.

  • Painting size – To be determined, probably 29x42cm.
  • Materials – Birch panel with Chromacolour acrylic paint.
  • When – Maybe 2023.
  • Expected difficulties – Painting a low-res image requires some interpretation and adaption – ie the logos on the bike.
