4"x 6" original watercolor

Sometimes bike rides yield more than
mileage. Some of the scenes almost look
like paintings themselves. This composition
reminds me again of the wonderful Winslow
Homer watercolors of young boys engaged
in fun.

As always, I start with a pencil sketch in
my sketch book. I work out all the painting
problems at this point. Yes it takes a little
more time but I feel it is time well spent.
It saves me from mistakes in the painting
process. I get a feel for the direction I
am going and the proportions.
I thought I would share this with you.
