Ritte way to go.

I borrowed a technique from a fellow redditor and water color artist I-wanna-hug Kim Winberry.  I think I went to dark on the handle bar tape.  It was hard to get the "effect" I was looking for.  However the fine pen lines really helps out the over all feel.

Anyhow this is a Ritte Cyclocross Crossberg -

Old English

I'd had a request to do a different type of bike then my usual fat, adventure or mountain bike.  The request was for a track bike.  This came up in the search for a track bike.  Here's the full story on it - http://www.englishcycles.com/custombikes/bens-tt-bike/

I wasn't totally happy with the way the ink turn out.  I do like how the red blended into orange.  Thou I think there should be more orange then I put in.  I've got to learn to be a little less heavy handed on the color.

It's a Harley

Well I finally did a Harley. Took a lot of time to ink it in.  Originally this was a all black rig.  Black is boring.  So I spiced it up a bit.

Brompton in the house

Sticking with my off kilter bikes of late I decided to do a Brompton. The detail in the rear triangle was a bit much plus the color of the frame threw me a little.  I really like how it's turned out however.

Baum - Ristretto

I'm not sure where I found the pictures of this bike.  I found the pic in my download file on my computer and just really liked it.  Turns out it's a steel framed custom made frame.  Some one here really likes steel.
