This painting was done some time ago in a class I was taking with Marge Brandt of Wapakoneta, Ohio, a great watercolorist and watercolor instructor. This was my first truck painting! Some of you may know that I am obsessed with old trucks and have posted some of the paintings on this blog in the past. Well - this is the truck that started it all! I am not too fond of the job I did on the truck, but I am proud of the rolled bales in the front and I think the forground is much stronger than the back of the painting. I should probably cut it in half and frame the bottom:) Of course, that is one of the weaknesses in this painting - it is really two paintings - top and bottom, with nothing to connect the two. I can see it now, but totally missed it then. I look back at these older painting, and I can really see how I have changed in my style of painting.
