Old Bicycle Watercolor Painting

Old Bicycle Watercolor Painting - 15 x 20 inches

I mangaged to start the background on the brick wall last night.  Lots of details need to be added on this old bicycle watercolor painting.  I have painted with layers of colcor on the background bricks and I think it still needs more dark color on the shadow side of the brick.  I alos touch up on the white bricks and I will do that if I find the area is too bright ater I finish the rest of the watercolor.

    This is an interesting subject and subtle composition. My question is whether you work from phots or field sketches? I love rusty and decayed items but rendering the oxidation seems difficult. You have the rust down pat.

    Thanks for your comment. I work from a photo on this one and it is only a part of a larger photo. I have cropped it to have such a composition. I am trying to make the rust look on the bicycle but I found that doing the bricks are more difficult.
