Kreremeos 1970

Remember if it looks like a truck it probably is. On the other hand, five fingers. Exploded view may result in illumination, then again...

The sunny side looks dusty. I don't know if that's intended, but it looks rally cool.
I totally agree about the b/w thing. It strips a picture naked so you can see every pock mark and wrinkle right along with the smoother contours.

Thanks Grimm, if it looks good then I did it on purpose.

No up close analyzing for me today, I just love this painting because it stopped me and made me look longer. Really nice piece here.

be good,
Todd

You must spend a lot of time finding old trucks and cars, or do you recycle the same ones in different settings? Great job on this.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Joan, I do the cars as individuals and then I put them in bigger pictures. But lots of doing the same thing, drawings and characters, over and over...I have lots of reference material but I make up the majority of my paintings.

Beautiful work. I've never worked in watercolor but it seems like a really challenging medium. Looks like you've mastered it.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Brendy, I've got a little bit of an idea, but I'm just starting to really learn.

I love the rosie blushes on the hood.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Michele, "rosie blushes" one of my favourite watercolour effects!

Beauty Ron... the orange blends into the truck very nicely (lost edges). A cheerful piece.
