Bike Shadows....Pedal Power!

I did get a chance to paint this bicycle photo...from New Orleans.
It's watercolor on Arches cold pressed paper.  I used a sponge
to make some of the texture in the corners.  The bike and the shadow are
painted mostly with just black, but I mixed in a little purple and blue.  I
thought it still needed some tweaking, so I worked on it a little more this morning.

So, here is the finished product.  I painted it all again, and deepened the
shadow.  I punched up the blues, and then added some more splatter on the
ground.  I like it...it's different for me, but fun!  Maybe a bicycle enthusiast will
have to have it!
