Rusting Through Retirement

Due to some health issues, my art has taken a hit lately!  But -I  started this one and am back painting.  This is 15" x 22" and is on 140 lb. Fabriano/Artistico cold-pressed watercolor paper.  I enlarged the photo in the drawing phase by using the grid method.  I plan to paint it one area at a time and then go back in and add darks/shadows, details where they are needed.  This is from a photograph by my friend Pamela Baker.

Hope you are feeling back to 100% soon. I like where this one is going and you do rust so well :)
