The painting is based on the legendary switchbacks of Alpe d'Huez. A famous mountain known from the Tour de France.
The starting point in this work is a screenshot from Google Earth. From that point on, I start to dissect the landscape into multiple layers of rectangular shapes.
I rode the climb 3 times. So far I could not defeat the one hour mark. My personal record stands at 1:01 hour.
But I will try again.
