Built Ford Tough

Well....YES!  I have painted another old truck!  I know...I am obsessed with them.  This painting of an old Ford truck, was painted as the example for a class I am teaching at Riverside Arts Center in Wapakoneta, Ohio.  Unfortunately, I used an old piece of watercolor paper - Strathmore - which doesn't hold up to the abuse I usually put paper through.  It got pebbles and washy looking right away.  The only redeeming factor was that the subject was an old truck, so it could look abused! :)

I so love when you do old vehicles, Barb. This is stunning and what an old work horse this truck looks to be. And I must say it looks like you could still drive it off the property!

Wow Barb!I can see your affinity for old trucks and cars in every one of your paintings of them. This is a wonderful rendering of this one and I love the "stuff" in the back, also. Nice job, as always.
