Started a series of watercolors that I hope to build on that are based on a local cyclocross race, the Rockport Rampage, held in Rockport, IN.
I went to the inaugural event a couple of weekends ago and set next to the course to try and do a quick sketch. It was a little cold and windy, but I pulled one off...not a great one, but I did it.
I love bicycles...anything to do with two wheels, really, and cyclocross seems to be a great combo of off road, off beat, and right up my alley. So, putting my artistic talents to it just seemed natural. It's the first time I've tackled a subject like this and sure won't be the last...
Here is the sketch I did the day of the race in my Moleskine watercolor sketchbook.
Then, this evening I've worked on two small watercolors that I used my photos that I shot that day for reference.
We'll see as time goes on what else I come up with for this series. I'm kinda stoked on the whole idea.
