Morning Ride - the cyclist with the red backpack

Scatty, our WDE host for the 14th of March, posted a lovely reference photo of two cyclists riding in the (I suppose) morning sunshine. As I wanted to practice more the figure painting, I was attracted by the body posture of the cyclists, and decided to have a go to only one of them, trying to also accentuate the long morning shadows. I am happy with some parts of this painting, and not so happy with some other, but this is what practice is supposed to do - help you identify the parts that need more thought next time and approach it differently, after doing some home-work on reading and studying other paintings, etc.
This is done with W&N and Daniel Smith watercolors on Waterford 140 lb CP paper. The size is approximately 7x10 inches.
