Vintage Fire Truck Revisited
I guess it is true!!! You can't paint the same painting twice. This is my second fire truck which I painted along with my students at the Riverside Arts Center Monday evening. At first glance it might appear to be the same, but it is actually very different. The truck, itself, is much tighter, and the background is different. But even if I tried to get it exactly the same, it wouldn't happen - for me it just isn't possible to do it. This one is slightly larger also. I used the same colors, the same reference photo and the same type of paper - it is still different. The student's paintings turned out very well. I was very proud of their work!
