Abandoned gas station

For years I've been meaning to paint this abandoned gas station on Rte 9 in Hadley MA, and finally biked over there and did this watercolor today. The second pic is what I was able to get down on site before the late afternoon light changed too much; for the final version I amped up the color and added some detail from a photo.
