I did this watercolor sketch today of an International Harvester truck abandoned in a barnyard. Instead of starting with a line drawing as I usually do, I started by blocking in shapes (of course, considering values) and then adding some details after the shapes were in. I think it worked, but I still prefer using my usual approach. I did learn alot today, though. This painting is 5" x 9" and is painted on 140 lb. hot-pressed watercolor paper.
