1955 Ford Crown Victoria


This is my answer to the Watercolor Workshop January project where everyone paints from the same source photograph. This pink car is a 1955 Ford Crown Victoria - a car I remember very well. It was painted on 1/4 sheet of Arches cold-pressed watercolor paper with Holbein watercolors. The more I painted, the tighter it got...partly because I fight "tight" and also the subject leads to tightness because of all the detail. This was fun to paint - it brought back a lot of memories.

I remember that too, Barb. I like the way you did the writing in pink.
