The Bike Race

Bikerace

Here's a very messy sketch of a new piece I'm working on this week. The foreground is such a mess because I tried out a few different things (kids watching, bunnies watching, vegetable patch) then decided it looked cleaner with just a grassy hill. The center line represents the non-existent gutter. It's just a portfolio piece but I thought it would be smart to consider it as a published piece (gutter, room for text, proportions of a standard book size). This will be the largest gouache piece to date once I paint it at about 10.5"x16".
