nothing beats an old truck. Love the meltiness of this one. Everything sort of melts together but stays separate. Like the truck doesn't melt into the background, well either you know what I mean or you don't. (your windows are always perfect)

Thanks N.N., this melty melty thing is all the rage in painting these days...soft edges, lost edges, Sargent or somebody said that hard edges are the result of lazy painting.

Cool Ron. I used to have a truck like this in AZ. Red though and probably slightly better shape. I even think the vacuum wipers worked once. Nice greens!

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks W.K., I've had a couple of cars with vacuum swipers including a 1937 Chev Coupe.

Great colors in this old truck and in the background. Do you realize you didn't give it a title?? That's not like you.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Joan, I'll fix that...

A lonely old grazer, put out to pasture.

He's pasturized, Grimm.

Long time no see, i'm sorry. Here goes the translation. I'm not sure it's a good translation. By the way, at my last post, there're links of another illustrators, and I guess you're gonna enjoy it.

(...) in a single car, in the first page, there are several colors, like green, blue, pink, yellow, red, orange; in another one, the light turns everything into black and white, with a red background. I think the pictures where we see some old and lonely cars are very sad. It's all like some drawing of nostalgia. And just like nostalgia, it puts beauties where they weren't.

Thanks B.M.
