My Attempt at a Hockney

This is my little celebration of our greatest living Artist David Hockney. RA who is currently exhibiting his latest work at the Royal Academy of Art.

I have attempted to reproduce a scene which I photographed on a recent cycle ride.
(See my countryside blog post dated 16th Feb 2012 for the photograph)

David Hockney's latest work which he completes from drawings he creates on an iPad 2 and reproduces in the studio. Its extremely difficult to try and create something in his style as he sees colours in scenes that really need a lot of examination to discover. Initially his latest work looks (to some) like something a child would produce, but the more you study it the more amazing it becomes. 
Unfortunately you wont find that here, but it was worth a try.
