Alley in watercolor

I finally set up a white light in our house, so now I can do some art after I come home from work. I thought I will a watercolor painting for a change of pace. I chose a picture of an alleyway from morguefile.com for this exercise. I tried to keep large shapes in mind as I did this exercise. I don't think I am super successful, but I am reasonably happy with how this turned out. I learned a few things and that is the most important thing anyway.
