Just across the Tradewater River that marks the boundary into Crittenden Co, KY. ,on Hwy. 132, sets an old 1949 Ford 1 ton truck. I pass it every time I drive down to my in-laws and keep telling myself I'm going to paint it. Well, I finally did. Working from a photo in the studio.
If you are interested in owning an original painting, please contact me. Sold work will be marked.
I started on a blank 9"x12" canvas and sketched it in directly with a view of the truck pulled up on my computer screen.
From there I just started building up the rusty color and texture on the truck.
And farther along
And the finished piece:
9"x12" oil on canvas panel
