Bicyles on 13th Street

This painting was from a picture I took in front of a bike shop near the University of Oregon. It was such a complex composition that I traced it onto the watercolor paper instead of drawing. It took me about 90 minutes to mask off all the spokes and white parts of the tires. I like the brightness of the front bike, the shadows and the bricks in the lower left.

I love the color and the patterns that the wheels, frames, spokes and shadows make...very graphic. Great work!
