This is my second submission to Virtual Paintout's Washington DC challenge. It's oil on 9x12 canvas panel.
For my second submission, I went to less tourist-filled areas, and came upon this cyclist next to a creek. (Ref) There was nice light and shadows there, so I decided to paint a cyclist again, despite the fact he was actually holding up the traffic in Google Maps.
Started with a purple background color, I used palette knives for the scenaries, except for the cyclist whom I thought would be too small and too difficult to be properly done with knives.
