"Grunge Truck" - Final Painting

This painting is finally finished.  I finished it this afternoon in our Thursday afternoon painting group with the Muses.  I am calling it Grunge Truck, because that is what Pamela titled the photograph.  The painting is 22" x 28" and is painted on 300 lb. Arches cold-pressed watercolor paper.  Many thanks to Pamela for the source photo and to Brenda Vogt for the very wonderful sheet of watercolor paper.  This painting was a challenge, but I am happy with the results.
