Old West Texas Truck

11x15 watercolor drawn yesterday and completed today, a commission that is SOLD.  This old hunk of rusting metal was photographed by me in Lamesa, TX years ago, sitting by its lonesome self in a vacant lot.  With my third time painting a rural scene such as this, I've omitted a few background houses and made the setting into a landscape with cloudy skies.  Foreground weeds are done in many layers as well as negative painting and splattering.  It was done on Arches rough 140 lb cold press paper/Daniel Smith pigments:  Quinacridones burnt orange and gold, undersea green, ultramarine blue, green gold, burnt sienna, raw umber, sepia, raw sienna, coastal fog, carbazole violet, indigo, transparent pyrrol orange and Halloween orange.
