Timeworn Truck

10x15 watercolor, 10 minutes to draw (no pencil) in black India ink then 1 hour approximately to paint an old truck and shack scene in graphic style (bold line, atmospheric, comic book, flat, etc.).  Dark clouds moving in on the scene were laid in first with raw umber violet, raw umber, prussian blue and sap green over lighter underpainting of cobalt ultramarine green.  I kept adding paint to wet washes and hoped for no mud as this was thin Canson paper 140 lb.  Ref featured on this weekend's drawing event on WetCanvas, courtesy Li Newton.
