Pamela's Truck - WIP #1

I worked on the drawing for the watercolor of this wonderful vintage truck painting yesterday and today. My friend Pamela Baker is a wonderful photographer and she has graciously allowed me to use her photographs as source pictures.  What a treat!!!   The size of the painting will be 22" x 15" and is on Canson Tientes 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.
I am drawing the truck by using grids- both on the photograph and on the watercolor paper.  The drawing is done with a 2B pencil.  This is going to be a really exciting painting for me!  The truck is awesome, as you can see in the photograph above the drawing.
