View Full Version : An Old Rusty Truck

Am posting a few things that I've done at "The Artists Loft". I've only taken up digital painting since January '04. Some need more work, but I'm posting them as I left them, and some might have a 'canvas' effect to it. They are not chronologically ordered. Will post them individually. Just want to share some things here.

Barb :D

I love this! Really nice work. I would be interested to know how you got the embossed effect of the frame.

it is a strong picture, i like the visible strokes and the bold colors..

Very oil like !!

On the frame, was it a PS effect and then smudged ?
that's how i'd try to emulate that effect, was it done differently ?

Congrats !

Barb this is very nice! I like it a lot. I have the feeling that you are probably done with this piece but I am going to add this any way. The little tree in front of the truck would have been better placed off to the side instead of dead center. It's never a good idea to center something like that and in this case takes away from you beautifully done truck.

Also the forground could have benafited by a darker ground before the lighter grass blades, which by the way look well done.
