Value-scape (watercolor)

This one is based on a photograph I took in Seville, Spain. At first I was overwhelmed by the details in the photo so I decided to make a small thumbnail value sketch. I then realized that it was really the reflection of sky in the wet road which made the photograph interesting. I then decided to do away with most details and painted this similar to the original value sketch. I liked the results!
