Rusty and Red...Retired
This painting - "Rusty and Red, Retired," is the latest lesson for the watercolor class in Wapakoneta. They know that, periodically we have to have our old truck fix,(or at least I do!) so here is the latest.
The source photo came from an internet friend, with permission of course, and the painting is 9" x 12" , painted on Canson 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper with mostly Holbein watercolors.
I used a generous amount of salt on this one, perhaps too much, but I wanted to give the impression/illusion of overgrowth/weeds, trees, etc.
