WIP #2: Rusting Through Retirement

Well - this is the second installment of the WIP of the truck.  As you can see, I have many hours of painting ahead of me.  This painting verges on the illustrative...I like to push this type of painting  to the point of illustration, but periodically redeem it through passages of expressionistic watercolor.  Time will tell on this one.  I am challenging myself to use only mixed color in this one - no color is directly from the tube!
