Back to one of my favorite subjects - bicycles...
But for the lovely textured old wall with those old torn posters...typically Indian, this subject would not have been worth painting. I very much enjoyed painting this one as I could use a lot of watercolor techniques here - masking, wet in wet, wet on dry, dry brush, lifting, spattering etc. to create the texture on the wall. Finally I did some collage work, pasting those little posters and painting them over with little color and adding some shadows to make it look very realistic.
Hope you like it :)
