Yaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwnnnnnnnn!!! This is mine after about 2 hrs ( very broken up 2 hrs.) Right now it's 2 am and I need to get to bed!!! I will work on it more tomorrow...
It's done with WN soft pastels on Canson WC block... I also did an underpainting but I don't think it made much of a difference...

The colors are alittle off... not as dull IRL.
Thx for lookin...Any comments and suggestions welcome!!! :D

Thank you Lisilik for all the great photos to chose from!!! It was a really hard choice.

Dania ( what a beautiful name, )

This is a terrific start. You completely caught the true colors of that old rusty bucket and the perspective. This will be great...once you get a little rest of course. Lovely !

good job, Dania....you got a great start.....I think all my paintings show up duller here, too. Glad to see you made it to the wde.

Gosh this is a popular subject - must admit I have snagged it for later - love the colours in this - cant wait to see it finished.

You've achieved a lot for two hours, nice work, great use of colours in the old car and good perspective.

Doesn't need much more at this point; already looking good... a bit of punching up the highlights and darks should do it.My images often show duller than RL, too, so it's easy to imagine this one looking brighter. Nice one!

I love the richness of the reds on the old car. Contrasting with the lively greens. Its looking very good!!

I knew this was going to be a favorite picture when I saw it. I down loaded it myself. You have a great start here and I hope you will post the finish. :clap: :clap:

It is looking good already, a great start. :D

Your precision drawing of the old car is wonderful- you sure do good work when sleep deprived ! :D I think I see by your background colours that it's spring on the prairies- that looks like the delicious green of newly sprouted wheat ! The car colours just sing- great work, muffin !! :clap: :clap:

Hi evryone....Thx for all your comments....it pushed me to get it finished today......At least I think it's finished....What do you think?

I think my total time spent on it was about 5 hrs....Kinda hard to judge when you keep getting interupted... :rolleyes: :mad: ........I think I need a sign to put on the back of my chair that reads "Creative process in Progress......DO NOT DISTURB!!!".. :evil: ... I doubt it would work though......my 3 yr old can't read.... :( :p :D
8" X 10 1/2"
I can officially say I broke in my new W&N soft pastels...This is my first completed piece with them. :D

It turned out great. I really like your color choices on the car :).

BTW - if you print up a bunch of those signs - send one my way! :p

You really made it zing with the extra time. I am old enough to think that this is the ways cars should be made - who would abandon a perfectly new car?

Excellent, excellent, excellent! Pastels work great for rust.
