Old Schwinn #2

"Old Schwinn #2"
oil on canvas - 8"x 8 "
Bicycle Series - sold

I have been busy with some commissions lately and thought you would enjoy seeing how this works. This was a re-creation of my first bicycle shadow paintings. The client wanted the same look and colors of the 6x8 but have it as an 8x8.
This was an old bicycle that sat beside my house without an owner.It had been abandoned for many months until one day I sat it in my front yard and did sketches of it. Next day it was gone.

You always do these paintings just perfectly. Can't believe how you can get so much information in a small space. Great use of color of the background against the bike.
