Old Bicycle Watercolor Painting

Old Bicycle Watercolor Painting - 15 x 20 inches

I have continue to paint the bicycle painting last night.  It takes a lot of time to get the deepest black possible.  There is at least six layers of watercolor wash to get the dark I want.  I want a variety of blacks and so as before, different mixes of Alizarin Crimson, French Ultramarine Blue and Windsor Green is used.  The rust on the bicycle is lots of fun too although I feel that it might need a little of toning down because it looks too bright in some areas.  Because of the detail of the subject, it takes a lot of time to paint just a little area.  I am looking forward of painting the shadows and the background which I think should be lots of fun.
