Pickup truck subject


Sometimes I waste a tremendous amount of time searching for a suitable watercolor subject. But a true artist should find subjects everywhere. While I was visiting Chad and Brittany, I stepped out their door and saw this old pickup in the alley and I thought, "I can paint that." It has all the challenges of any painting: composition, shape, color, and value. I spent a pleasant hour working on this watercolor.
