Cycling in France – Watercolour sketch

In anticipation of a visit to the Van Gogh exhibit that is currently at the National Gallery in Ottawa, I decided to do a watercolour in his style.

I chose a picture that I took while cycling in France.

I sketched the outline in pencil first and then used the paints. It went very quickly.
