WIP: Rusting Through Retirement

Due to some health issues, my art has taken a hit lately! But -I started this one and am back painting. This is 15" x 22" and is on 140 lb. Fabriano/Artistico cold-pressed watercolor paper. I enlarged the photo in the drawing phase by using the grid method. I plan to paint it one area at a time and then go back in and add darks/shadows, details where they are needed. This is from a photograph by my friend Pamela Baker.

Barb, I hope that you are feeling much better! Your truck paintings are always so beautiful- I am really looking forward to the rest of this WIP.
Take good care of yourself.
