Bicycle in the Snow

10 x 13 in  -  25 x 33 cm     Watercolor    
Painted for a two hour challenge on it does not look too bad. The challenge is to pick and then paint a white subject from a small set of reference photos.

As aways there is a two hour max time limit. Of course with this style of painting I was well within that, comming out at bit over an hour.

The ref I picked comes courtesy of the Morguefile.

High Key Araf

Araf is a colleague. Very photogenic and with a great smile. I hoped to catch the smile in the painting and I think I have. The rest of the picture has tuned out a bit more high key than I was planning for.

Well at least I get a few marks for effort.
