Last week I set up and began painting the Denver Big Air setup in the middle of Civic Center Park. The building and construction was still underway and I had the great opportunity to meet some of the creative and insanely fearless contractors working on completing the structure. One of these artists was Dave McKay who so graciously sent me the photo above of the piece in action. I took the piece back to the studio and completed it from memory and photo reference.
I will post the final piece tomorrow as the event gets underway.
The structure is 101 ft tall and is destined to have two kickers in the middle section of the ramp launching competitors into the air and towards the flat bottom in between the Denver State Capital and the City Courthouse.
