Here I've used a photo ref of an old rusted out Ford truck. I used ArtRage first to sculpt the image and then using PhotoPaint I added a layer of the photo at low opacity to get some detail back. C&C welcome.

This is a seriously engaging painting that opens up questions eg for a rusted truck, this has a lot of life - what is the light reflecting on the headlight light/upper right and who/what is it coming from? The close up cropping augments the feeling something is about to happen.

The colors, and brush strokes make this extremely interesting! I so admire this type of painting but don't know how to achieve it. Perhaps you could do some tutorial?

Hi Babs! I used the trace function in ArtRage. It picks up the colors from the reference photo I used, All I did was to follow the shapes and values and shadows with my brushes. It was a great experience to use ArtRage and try to get a feel of real oil painting, which I have never done. I don't think I could do a tutorial other than the explanation I just gave. I wouldn't know where to start! LOL! :)
